It's important for a university teaching public relations to be connected with the world in which public relations is practised.
It's also useful to break out of the silo/ghetto of scheduled teaching delivered on discrete modules. So we're opening our doors for a public lecture series and welcoming any of our students, and those from neighbouring universities, CIPR regional members and other PR practitioners. Let me know (via the comments feature) if you'd like to attend and I'll make sure you're welcomed; also let me know if you'd like to speak at a future event (we have autumn and spring series).
All these talks take place at our Headingley Campus in Leeds from 6.30-7.30pm on Monday evenings.
