Public Relations Global Network Bi-Annual Meeting

Succession and acquisition strategies, digital solutions and services, growth in the Asia-Pacific region and reaching and involving Generation Z among larger opportunities discussed by global PR professionals at the public relations global network ‘s bi-annual meeting.

The Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) held its bi-annual meeting. The meeting took place in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, between May 16-18, 2019. The group’s leadership teams discuss best practices and sought new ways to collaborate and develop business partnerships globally. These meetings help inform the group’s direction as a result of each member’s input.

The three-day event includes sessions and presentations on leadership succession and agency acquisition strategies. This enhances individual agency performance, growth opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region and digital solutions and services spearheading change in public relations.

Members present had a chance to enjoy insights from René C.W. Bounder, “Brain Agent” and counselor to the world’s top-ranking companies. In his keynote speech he shared his recipes to the best approaches to reach and involve Generation Z and Millennials. Bounder points to new avenues of public relations and communications in a digital age. Because so much is digital this was an essential portion.

The Amersfoort meeting’s attendance includes members from 41 agencies. PRGN members chose to elect Aaron Blank, CEO and president of Seattle-based The Fearey Group as its 27th president. Because of his experience he made a fantastic candidate. Current members also selected two new agency members. Due to this selection, the global communications group now is comprised of 50 independent, owner-operated communications and public relations firms.

PRGN was founded in 1992 by a group of visionary public relations leaders. PRGN is now one of the largest international networks of independent public relations and communications agencies. It has more than $85 million in revenues. Members amount to approximately 1,000 professionals globally.
