The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) in partnership with Ragan Communications, Inc. is bringing you an exclusive, small-group forum for PR leaders to discuss challenges and find immediate, tangible solutions.

This is NOT a traditional conference. 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"


Why should you attend?

  • Meet like-minded peers to discuss challenges and brainstorm solutions

  • Benchmark your work

  • Return to the office with successful initiatives from other organizations

  • Network with your industry peers in complete privacy

  • Air out your messiest, thorniest difficulties in an atmosphere of candor and trust

  • Join informal, frank, off-the-record conversations, rather than listen to lectures

What else on the agenda?

  • The forum runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • We'll survey you pre-forum so we cover issues relevant to you

  • No sitting through long presentations—this will be a day-long dialogue on topics that keep you up at night

  • You'll mix with experienced, articulate PR leaders—like yourself

  • Your moderators will keep discussions lively and on topic—we promise!

  • We'll send you complete notes of the meeting shortly after the event.
