PAST EVENT: Virtual PUBlic Relations: Post-Pandemic PR

Tuesday 25 May 2021, 12-1pm, online via Microsoft Teams. 

We’re back with the latest PUBlic Relations event for Oxford’s thriving PR community.

This time we’re asking: what does Oxford’s public relations look like post-pandemic?

The last twelve months have transformed almost every aspect of our lives – not least the way we work.

Most of us have been working remotely; finding new ways to collaborate and get the job done. And communications has never been so important. It’s played a key role in helping our organisations to respond to the challenges of the pandemic; building connections with our audiences, and helping to cut through at a time where COVID-19 was the only gig in town.

What can we learn as we (hopefully) begin to emerge from the pandemic? Will home working stick? Or is a return to the commute to the city centre and business parks in sight? Will communications’ elevated status be here to stay, or will we revert previous ways of working? What role does public relations have in helping us to move beyond COVID-19?

Speakers on the day will be:

  • Anna Myers, Head of Internal Communications, University of Oxford
  • Sharon O’Dea, Digital Communications and Digital Strategy Specialist
  • Gemma Tuck, Client Services Director, Tamarindo Communications

We’re trialling a new lunchtime slot for our online events, so grab a cup of tea (or something stronger if needed) and a sandwich, and log in from the comfort of your own home to join our panel of experts as we look to the future.

It will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and joining instructions will be sent in the days running up to the event. It is exclusively for those working in PR and communications in Oxford and surrounding areas.

PUBlic Relations events are run in association with the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) as part of the Thames and Chiltern Region. CIPR members attending can gain 5 CIPR CPD points.

Sign up now on Eventbrite.

We look forward to seeing you there.
