A bad month for 70% of CIPR members

This month has not been a good month for UK Press officers.
The butter is melting on their bread. The P45 looms.
The CIPR research shows that 70% of in-house PR people are involved in 'media relations' and nearly as many write for the press. The figures are less for agency staff who spend more time on media planning and strategy.

I guess they might be a little concerned:


Online PR needs a focus and a champion Like, for example CIPR. Is its training programme delivering the on line goods?

PR writing skills


Oh... (not quite 'Management Function' stuff) ... good. Three opportunities to discover how to write for an Intranet.


The brighter light on the CIPR horizon (including Simon, Stephen, Nicky, and Richard) is this one: It is the session at the CIPR's Northern Conference 2006 PR blogging workshop session which takes place on Thursday 6 July in Leeds.
