The Public Affairs professional: Why does the market need a specialisation in Public Affairs?
Dear Madam, Sir,
We are pleased to invite you to a joint event on 23 May from 18.00h to 20.00h organised by the Spanish Association of Institutional Relations Professionals (APRI), ISG Personnel Management and IE:
Panel Discussion: The Public Affairs professional
Why does the market need a specialisation in Public Affairs?
The event aims at discussing and analysing the position of an economic operator in the legislative environment and the need to be aware of the regulatory framework surrounding its business. What risk does a company run by not following the legislative developments? The panel will then also look into the role of the public affairs professional in demonstrating the impact of legislation on business and in finding ways to accomodate the company´s business in that framwork. What attributes does the public affairs representative need in order to navigate the system?
After introductory remarks by APRI, the ISG Public Affairs Practice and IE, we invite the audience uniting human resources managers of private companies, public affairs professionals, future professionals and academia to a discussion and a questions and answers session.
Time: 23 May 18.00h-20.00h
