Essential vs non-essential

Singapore Press Club - Institute of Public Relations of Singapore Webinar

Essential vs non-essential:

the value of media, PR and marketing professionals during this pandemic

Singapore Press Club and Institute of Public Relations of Singapore are delighted to invite you to our upcoming webinar event being held on Thursday, 16th July 2020 11am to 12 noon

This online panel discussion will dissect the uproar last month over social media managers/PR specialists, creatives and business professionals being listed as “non-essential” jobs when in fact, these roles are more relevant than ever to corporates and the community. Panelists will discuss the recent story against the backdrop of media/marcomms-related challenges faced during this pandemic and ways to tackle them.
