Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) International Committee member and accredited practitioner, Richard Rose has announced plans to establish a network in Jamaica for public relations and communications practitioners, and like-minded professionals, interested in discussing and learning from one another about issues facing communicators working internationally.

Rose, who was voted to CIPR International at the committee's annual general meeting in London in February this year, explained that the committee aims to support members working in many different sectors within the global communications industry by facilitating understanding of cultural differences, building relations with other countries, and helping to benchmark, share and learn from best practice.

The diverse, multicultural committee is generally located within London, with co-opted members based overseas currently in Singapore, the USA, Switzerland and Jamaica.

Shirley Collyer, chairperson of the CIPR International Committee, said developing people in their careers is a key aim of the committee, and added that she was impressed with Rose's determination to support fellow PR practitioners in Jamaica and the Caribbean.

“We are delighted to welcome him to the committee,” she said.

On his election to the committee Rose called it “a great opportunity to share best practice and to network and learn from other PR practitioners who are operating across Europe, Asia, the USA and the Middle East”.

“I am particularly pleased that the chair and the international committee have agreed that I will have the opportunity to share webinars on ethics, reputation management, and other best practice materials with PR practitioners within my network in Jamaica and the Caribbean.

“In addition, I will be focusing on working closely with organisations that have a keen interest in managing their reputation, stakeholder relations, and managing communications during change,” he said.

Rose can be contacted via Hudson Rose Communications on 876 327 7570 or via

The CIPR is the largest member organisation for PR practitioners outside of North America and the leading representative body for the PR profession and industry in Europe.
