“The public relations landscape is continuously evolving, more so in recent years than before. PR professionals no longer can operate in silo – thus the need to transform and stay relevant in terms of bringing value to the clients and industries they serve," said See in a statement today.
"Communications is an important element in any organisation; but public relations has been and will always remain one of the most powerful and effective tools in reputation building, marketing communications and value creation - and this has not changed,” he added.
Bringing close to 20 years of experience in the public relations industry, See is the founder and MD of Perspective Strategies.
PRCA Malaysia was formed in 1999 as a non-profit organisation where local PR and communications practitioners can share their knowledge and experiences to develop the PR industry.
