CPD - Highlights of 2016 and trends for 2017
2016 was a challenging year for most of the PR industry and CPD did not escape this. In spite of this, we had some tremendous highlights and some bumper attendance. The Measurement and Evaluation workshop holds the record for attendance in 2016 with delegates having an eclectic mix of experience.

The Crisis Communication workshop had an extra day added for some practical interaction by way of a mock media interview. The delegates thoroughly enjoyed being put in front of the camera with the facilitator drilling them. Click here to read more.
