Course objectives

From any company or organization's perspective, there is always a need to manage its public profile. The manager in which a company is perceived is of utmost importance.

​Bearing this in mind, public relation is a function that serves to highlight the strengths of a company, minimize its faults and interface with the public about the nature of the business. If you embark on a career in public relations, expect to create glowing communiques, press releases, press packages, and interface with internal and external stakeholders of any company or organization.

​Another important function of public relations is risk management. If there is any negative press around a company, a public relations officer usually steps in with disaster management strategies. Expect to skill up by identifying and training spokespersons, establishing notifications and monitoring systems, and engaging in post-crisis analysis.
