The Experiencing Public Relations book is a compilation of essays from 12 Nigerian women practicing public relations in Nigeria, Ireland, the United States and the United Kingdom. With contributors ranging from entry level professionals to veterans with over two decades’ experience, the articles discuss practical steps and raise thought-provoking questions that can help readers navigate their public relations journey from being young professionals to c-suite public relations women.
“This is our contribution to the body of knowledge in public relations, which is critical for the continued growth of our industry. Our selection process in identifying contributors was rigorous and carefully designed to ensure that we get representation across different generations. We also made certain to have contributors who work on the client side as well as in PR agencies. This is why we are confident that the information contained in the book will be of significant benefit to all public relations practitioners, both male and female, our industry regulators and the general public. Even more interesting – the book will be available to download for free on our website www.ngwomeninpr.org after the launch!” says Tolulope Olorundero, Editor-in-Chief of Experiencing Public Relations and Founder, Nigerian Women in Public Relations.
