Succession and acquisition strategies, digital solutions and services, growth in the Asia-Pacific region and reaching and involving Generation Z among larger opportunities discussed by global PR professionals at the bi-annual meeting.
The Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) held its bi-annual meeting in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, between May 16-18, 2019 where the group’s leadership teams discussed best practices and sought new ways to collaborate and develop business partnerships globally.
The three-day event included sessions and presentations on leadership succession and agency acquisition strategies, enhancing individual agency performance, growth opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region and digital solutions and services spearheading change in public relations.
Members present had a chance to enjoy insights from René C.W. Bounder, “Brain Agent” and counselor to the world’s top-ranking companies, who in his keynote speech shared his recipes to the best approaches to reach and involve Generation Z and Millennials and pointed new avenues of public relations and communications in a digital age.
At the Amersfoort meeting, attended by members from 41 agencies, PRGN members elected Aaron Blank, CEO and president of Seattle-based The Fearey Group as its 27th president and selected two new agency members. The global communications group now is comprised of 50 independent, owner-operated communications and public relations firms.
