Tonight I am going to be busy attending a CIPR event entitled ‘PR and the digital Frontier’. It’s being held at Leeds Metropolitan University and I am going in my role as the social media coordinator for the CIPR in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

My colleague Beth Kay and I will also be going to catch up with a few former colleagues and hopefully say hello to our friend Richard Bailey.

The speaker who will be discussing all things social media will be Rob Brown formerly of McCann Eriksson.

Interestingly, while on the topic of CIPR. The CIPR Facebook group I started a while back is now up to 43 members, which granted isn’t loads but it still isn’t bad from absolutely nothing.

If you want to join the open group just click here. You don’t have to be a CIPR member and I do try to keep it updated with all the events, news and potential issues on anything PR related.

As with all groups there is also a discussion board, so if you want to ask other members a question feel free.

In the long run I am hoping that this will grow to become a useful resource for PR practitioners around these parts.

If you are attending tonight’s event do let me know and we can meet up. I will hopefully see you there.
