Issues Management and Public Affairs
Successful PR is built upon the management of a variety of key issues. Issues that could affect the reputation of the organisation both positively and negatively. It’s how these issues are identified, prioritised and handled that determines the effectiveness of the PR campaign. The range and complexity of issues businesses face varies enormously from one to the next. But what never changes is the importance of proactivity – being primed and ready to respond to every issue as it arises. Inconsistencies in issues management can lead to matters of priority being overlooked, in favour of largely inconsequential side-issues.
This insightful tutorial has been designed for anyone working in PR or reputation management at any level.
