A celebration of 60 years of Women in PR on the PRmoment podcast

Welcome to the PRmoment Podcast.

This week we’re chatting to Anna Geffert, founder of Hera Communications. Anna is the current President of Women in PR and we’re talking to her today about the 60th Anniversary of Women in PR.

The organisation was founded in 1962 and on the show today we’re going to discuss how it started and how it’s changed over the last 60 years.

As you’ve probably seen, the shortlist for The PRmoment Awards is now out, so do get your tickets for the awards nights, all the details are on the homepage of the PRmoment Awards microsite.

Do take a look at PRmoment’s Patron Scheme. We have three different Patron Tiers—The Daney Parker Tier, The Chadlington Tier and Edward Bernays Tier.
