The Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communications Management has dedicated April 2020 to a virtual ‘Education & Training Month’ as part of our continuing support of the profession worldwide during the COVID-19 crisis.

Continuing education and training in public relations and communications plays a vital role in the services offered by our members worldwide. That is why the Global Alliance is inviting all our members to join in with their own initiatives.

The Global Alliance is providing an extended and enhanced free program of over 30 sessions hosted by Public Relations & Communications experts around the world. The online platform is powered by CIPR – the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.

With contributions from senior practitioners on six continents, the opening session was kicked off by José Manuel Velasco Guardado from Spain on 1 April, continuing with sessions from Brazil, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, New Zealand, Nigeria, Peru, Portugal, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the UK and the United States.
