Sponsored by the PRSA Board of Ethics and Professional Standards

As public relations professionals, we are expected to conduct our affairs openly and honestly, and in the best interest of those who are impacted by the actions of our clients or employer. But how are our actions perceived by those publics, and how do we address those perceptions and meet expectations?

Join us for this lively webinar as we discuss the challenges that we face each day as professional communicators. Panelists representing corporate, agency and association clients will offer insights gained on the front lines of public relations practice.
