Nigerian Women in PR, a social impact professional organisation set up to advocate for, and provide growth resources to Nigerian women working in Public Relations in and outside Nigeria has held an exclusive stakeholders brunch ahead of the/its 2023 Experiencing PR Conference coming up in March 2023.
Attended by representatives of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), leading industry professionals, and journalists, the roundtable discussion was aimed at bringing together key players in the Communications and Public Relations industry, with a vision to partner and drive conversations towards the 2023 Experiencing PR Conference.
Speaking during the stakeholders meeting, Tolulope Olorundero, Global Public Relations Consultant and Founder of Nigerian Women in Public Relations, said “the 2023 Experiencing PR Conference is a significant landmark for us as an organisation. As public relations professionals, we understand the importance of stakeholder engagement and buy-in to ensure sustainable partnership and success for critical projects like ours.”
The Experiencing PR Annual Conference is an annual gathering of business leaders, public office holders and public relations professionals who have experienced the value of public relations and can speak on its direct impact on their work and businesses.
Themed “Beyond Crisis: PR for Perception Management in Business and Public Affairs”, the 2023 Experiencing PR Conference will feature discourse on the significant impact Public Relations plays in shaping perception across both public and private enterprises.
Commenting on the event, Olorundero said that the Conference is targeted towards multi-level stakeholder education and advocacy for the public relations profession. In her words:
In a complex society like ours, Public relations helps to reach decisions and function more effectively by contributing to mutual understanding among groups and institutions. As Nigeria transitions into a new government in May 2023, it is increasingly obvious that the economy needs drastic intervention and the citizens also need a mindset reorientation in addition to a deliberate perception shift. Experiencing PR aims to fill that knowledge gap in understanding the value of PR and positioning professionals to take the stage which has been set before them. We particularly appreciate our partners who have come today and who continually support the work that we do in the Public Relation space.
