Lymington Consultant to Head Regional PR Group

Lyndsey Whiteside, Managing Director of Inspired Public Relations, Lymington; has been elected to chair the regional, Wessex group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.  Lyndsey has been involved with the CIPR for 14 years and held the position of Vice Chair last year.

The Wessex group supports PR practitioners across Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight.  The aim of the group is to provide opportunities for skill development and networking as well as championing communications students studying at Bournemouth and Southampton Solent universities.

“I am immensely proud to be leading a group as successful as Wessex” said Lyndsey.  “PR has become both multi-faceted and crucial to corporate success. As PR professionals, we should all keep learning; examining new ways of approaching and influencing publics.  The major objectives of our group this year will be to help our members achieve this.”

The first major event of 2011 for the Wessex CIPR group will be “Meet the Professionals” where PR practitioners from the region visit the universities to meet and mentor the students.

A full executive committee was elected to support Lyndsey, drawn from across the region.  Taking on the role of treasurer is Paul Noble from Cranborne in Dorset, the vice chair is Kevin Briscoe from Fareham and the group Secretary is Sarah Miles from Fareham. Six other committee members were also elected.
