Lobbying is sometimes considered a dirty word. But public affairs is an important part of the PR industry and often a key plinth of communications strategies.
In an ever-volatile media environment and changing media PR landscape, how do organisations most effectively engage with policy, and what methods do they need to put in place in order to influence?
In our latest PUBlic Relations event, we have assembled an expert panel made up of politicians and public affairs experts to share their insights on this important topic.
- Ed Vaizey MP, Member of Parliament for Didcot and Wantage and ex Minister for Culture & Digital Economy
- Frank Nigriello, Director of Corporate Affairs at Unipart Group and Chairman of Oxfordshire Business First
- Susan Brown, Head of Media and Staff Communications at Oxford University Hospitals, and Leader of Oxford City Council
The event will give Oxford’s thriving PR community an opportunity to learn more about public affairs; hear from the experts about what the industry needs to do to respond to the latest developments; and gain practical advice about how best to engage with policy.
With quarterly events in pubs around the city, PUBlic Relations events bring together some of the brightest experts from Oxford and beyond to discuss the latest trends in all areas of internal and external communications.

We look forward to seeing you there,
