she wanted to understand \'why Western Companies need Public Relations managers\'.
Today the question would be \'how should Asian companies best use public relations.'
This book is a much needed source of guidance on how PR can work in what are now the
largest markets for many organisations.\'

theory and ethics in PR. This is followed by a look at the strategy and planning of
a pr campaign. Section three takes the reader through the practical skills such as
media relations, internal communications, events management and design while the
