The Importance of This Course and Statement of its Objectives.

 

Our course on Public Relations in Principle and Practice is about how to deal with people outside the organization. Interface between the organisation and its external environment is of paramount importance, particularly in our current climate of enhanced sensitivity to Political Correctness and Diversity Awareness.

 It helps the organisation to limit and manage risks, limiting the damage that related exposure might generate. It also helps participants to develop an excellent relationship with the media, understanding how to make timely releases, addressing its concerns, in a timely fashion. All these efforts will improve the Public's perception of the organisation, engendering 'Public Trust'.

 One of the most important issues that this course addresses is the ability of the organisation to Publicise its 'Social Objectives', while underplaying its 'Business Objectives', a factor that has seen the enormous success of several International Businesses and the positive images portrayed by many Public-Sector Organisations.
