Global Capabilities: Ensuring you’re future-proof, with Anne Gregory

Webinars

The Global Capability Framework for Public Relations and Communications Management is the most ambitious and comprehensive initiative undertaken by the industry. Its aim has been to construct a capability framework that can be applied globally, reflects cultural and regional variations in public relations as a profession, and is forward-looking in its approach.

Funded by the University of Huddersfield and supported by the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management (GA), the project included academics from Sweden, Spain, Argentina, Canada, US, South Africa, Singapore, Australia and the U.K.

We’re honored to be joined by the project’s co-lead, Professor Anne Gregory, as she talks us through what we need to do to stay relevant in an industry and function that is changing at a remarkable pace.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What communications, organizational and professional capabilities you should focus on.
  • How you can assess your abilities, to better understand where you need to develop your (and others) skill sets.
  • Why the framework differs between countries and cultures.
