Car­pio, Mogato among speak­ers at PR Congress

Manila Times - - Public Square -

SUPREME Court Jus­tice An­to­nio Car­pio and Pulitzer Prize-win­ning jour­nal­ist Manuel Mogato are among the speak­ers who will ad­dress the 25th Na­tional PR Congress, on Septem­ber 27 and 28.

To be held at Shangri-La at the Fort, in Taguig City, the coun­try’s big­gest gath­er­ing of pub­lic re­la­tions and com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­fes­sion­als will set the spot­light on build­ing con­sen­sus to ex­plore so­lu­tions to­ward en­sur­ing truth in the prac­tice of good com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Car­pio will talk about the ter­ri­to­rial dis­putes be­tween Manila and Bei­jing, as well as other claimants, in the South China Sea, while Mogato is ex­pected to shine light on ques­tions re­gard­ing the up­com­ing midterm elec­tions.

They will be joined by José Manuel Ve­lasco, chair of the Al­liance of Pub­lic Re­la­tions and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Man­age­ment; Ber­nadette Ro­mu­loPuyat, Sec­re­tary of the De­part­ment of Tourism; and Ellen Torde­sil­las, trusteee and writer of the news web­site VERA Files, among oth­ers.

The 25th Na­tional PR Congress will en­gage all prac­ti­tion­ers and as­pi­rants to up­hold the truth in th­ese chal­leng­ing times, with the theme “Truth or Trolls: PR in the Age of Dis­in­for­ma­tion.”

This sup­ports PRSP’s over­ar­ch­ing prin­ci­ple for this year’s Na­tional PR Month, “One for Truth,” which seeks to unite com­mu­ni­ca­tors and their publics to be vig­i­lant in prac­tic­ing re­spon­si­ble and truth-based com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

The two-day event wel­comes lead­ers and pro­fes­sion­als from var­i­ous fields and sec­tors—mar­ket­ing to hu­man re­sources, gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tions to non­govern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions and en­trepreneurs. Reg­is­ter on­line at
