About #PRFest

Now in its second year, #PRFest is set to help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to modernise your practice and keep abreast of the developments in this fast-paced industry.

Leaders in tech, PR and other areas of communications are brought under the #PRFest umbrella to impart their knowledge and experience, sharing best practice and ultimately help you in your professional development. PR has such a fantastic opportunity to lead in so many areas of our work, as we diversify, and it’s up to you as practitioners to take the reigns and keep on evolving.

Some practitioners may need guidance as to what they need to learn. That’s fine, we’re all learning! #PRFest will help guide you in the right direction and hopefully give you a thirst to continue your learning outwith the festival.

Those enrolled in CPD can also gain up to 20 points!

#PRFest is a two-day public relations festival designed by Laura Sutherland, Chief at Glasgow-based Aura PR. Her view is that sharing is caring – sharing knowledge and expertise is one of the best ways to help the industry develop.

The festival takes place after Festival of Media, ahead of the Edinburgh festivals and it also coincides with two major international PR events; AMEC’s International Summit and Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

If there is one investment to make this year in your professional development, this is it. Grab the bull by the horns and take control over your destiny.
