Upcoming Events 
 
Mark Ragan's Senior Leadership Forums 
 
 
 

Once again, the CPRS has partnered with Ragan Communications, Inc. to bring you an exclusive, small-group forum for PR leaders to discuss challenges and find immediate, tangible solutions.

These are NOT your traditional conferences. There will be no presentations, no case studies, no long-winded lectures.

Instead, PR Daily Publisher and Ragan Communications CEO Mark Ragan will lead an interactive roundtable discussion with 30 of your fellow senior managers, directors, and vice presidents.

You'll exchange ideas, solve problems, benchmark, network and brainstorm.

Some topics that you'll discuss include how to:

  • Increase reliably-measured ROI for your PR and media relations programs
  • Improve reputation, increase brand recognition and earn bigger budgets
  • Harness brand journalism to get credibility, coverage and social media buzz
  • Find—and pitch—influential journalists on social media
  • Reinvent campaigns and careers with amazing PR "experiences"

Upcoming Dates:

Victoria BC – November 28, 2017

Calgary, AB – November 30, 2017
