PUBLIC RELATIONS DEFINED

  • Hold your breath, the Public Relations Society of America has formally defined Public Relations (after months of debates, voting and suggestions) as: “Public relations is a strategic communication process that builds mutually beneficial relationships between organizations and their publics.”
    • Sounds like they read my Public Relations book: “For Immediate Release: Shape Minds, Build Brands, and Deliver Results with Game-Changing Public Relations” and the definition which stated:
      • Great pub•lic re•la•tions \’grāt p˘ub’l˘ık rı˘-lā’sh ens\ n pl: 1. helps make the impersonal personal. 2. bridges divides.3. creates excitement and builds equity for businesses, personalities, politicians, and others.

The PRSA said that it’s the “beginning of an ongoing, sustained discussion about what it is the public relations industry does.” It’s something our industry – PR Agencies and in-house PR teams alike needs more of – and something I have plenty to say about – and will comment on extensively shortly. And I write about it plenty in my book which can be purchased at:
