Lyndsey Whiteside, managing director of Inspired Public Relations in Lymington, has been elected to chair the regional Wessex group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
Whiteside has been involved with the CIPR for 14 years and held the position of Vice Chair last year.
“I am immensely proud to be leading a group as successful as Wessex” said Lyndsey. “PR has become both multi-faceted and crucial to corporate success. As PR professionals, we should all keep learning; examining new ways of approaching and influencing publics. The major objectives of our group this year will be to help our members achieve this.”
The Wessex group supports PR practitioners across Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight. The aim of the group is to provide opportunities for skill development and networking as well as championing communications students studying at Bournemouth and Southampton Solent universities.
