Free Courses: Public Relations

International Trade Council




Public opinion is the single most powerful and influential factor in determining whether or not any business or organisation will succeed.  The same is true across private and public sectors alike – public opinion having the power to make or break a brand in record time.  Just as strong public opinion can propel a business to success in an instant, a poor reputation can have the exact opposite effect.  The Internet has made constant and aggressive reputation management more important than ever before – a process orchestrated and managed by PR professionals.

As a profession, public relations is challenging, rewarding and fulfilling equal measures.  Along with practical experience and a very specific set of character traits, it takes a strong educational foundation upon which to build a life-long career in PR.
