About the group

The CIPR Channel Islands Group encompasses public relations and communications practitioners in Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark and provides a forum for the exchange of ideas while endeavouring to educate and inform external audiences about the benefits and value of professional communications expertise in all spheres of business and public life.

The local committee is very aware of the higher financial costs and time constraints to local practitioners to travel away for training, and so where possible organises events to aid members to fulfil their CPD requirements closer to home.
Aside from this, the group maintains strong links with the PR Academy who offer a range of CIPR qualifications and education, training and coaching for communications professionals.

There are no records.

2020 was for our regional group, like many others, a very difficult year. Following a successful charity quiz in Jersey in February all other planned events were cancelled.

We did finally manage to organise a dinner with motivational speaker in Jersey and a fantastic event with the States of Guernsey communication team in Guernsey towards the end of last year.

Our first event of 2021 was a very well-attended charity fund-raiser, a live online Q&A session with local presenter, journalist and writer, Gary Burgess, raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Other events that we have managed to stage since then include:
  • April 2021 – ‘How to measure your internal communications and why it matters’ with Advita Patel (online – hosted by Hannah Shellswell and William Church in Jersey)
  • April 2021 – ‘Branding and Brewing’ with the Potting Shed (Guernsey)
  • July 2021 – ‘Meet the editor and tour of the Guernsey Press’ (Guernsey)

CIPR_CI Annual Forum.
- Our flagship event which alternates between the two islands returns to Jersey on Thursday 21st October with a livestream to Guernsey. Entitled 'Communicating in a Cyber Crisis', there is a wonderful line-up of speakers that should appeal to a wider business audience, and includes an interview with representatives from Appleby law firm about the crisis they faced in 2017 that triggered global awareness. Booking details are through Eventbrite https://bit.ly/CIPR_CI_Forum2021
