Unwrap Your Talents this Christmas - a learning gift to you from PRINZ

10 December 2019 // 2 CPD credits

Been a busy year right? Head down, keen focus — just set on getting the work done? No real chance for any ‘you’ time as the pace is just too hectic?

Well, it’s nearly Christmas and here at PRINZ we’d like to give you the gift of a little ‘you’ time. A special gift to take you towards a capable, clever and curiosity-filled New Year.

We’re unwrapping a new free-to-use tool available to PRINZ members that helps you figure out what you know - and what you don’t. It helps you work out what you need to do to improve your work, what you’re doing just fine and the areas you need to concentrate on to improve your skills and capabilities as a PR professional.

As an assessment tool it helps you plan and manage your professional development for 2020 and, if you are part of a team, your manager or team leader can use the tool to assess everyone’s capabilities and determine where the team needs to be strengthened.

How it works, how you can use it and all you need to know about the Global Capabilities Framework for public relations and communication management is at the heart of a PRINZ webinar on December 10 2019 presented by Catherine Arrow FPRINZ.

Sign up for some ‘you’ time, discover how to unwrap your talents for 2020 and get ready to plot your course for the year ahead.
