Public relations the art of effective communication in theory and practice Conference is organized by the Department of Humanities, the Karol Adamiecki University of Economics, Katowice, Poland, for the third time. The Conference is addressed to the wide environment of scholars and practitioners of public relations, both from Poland and abroad.
The previous Conferences revealed the existence of many problems relating to effective and efficient communication faced by the participants of the social life. They also proved the importance of the integration of specialists working in the field of public relations as researchers, teachers and practitioners.
This year's Conference aims to promote public relations and discuss current issues both in the field of research and in public relations practice, in Poland and in other countries.
The main theme of the Conference is very broad, this year, however, the PR FORUM will particularly focus on the role of media in communication, public relations in politics, corporate image creation, international and ethical aspects of public relations.
Special discussion panels will be held in order to present the problems and achievements of PR practice and discuss then in the light of PR theory:
I. Creativity in public relations: vision and improvisation or a plan?Issues:
1. The professionalism of the public relations specialist involves the skilful combination of creativity and regularity in his work.2. The need to develop an image creation programme imposes some routine on the PR specialist's activities.3. Can PR activity be based entirely on the creative approach?
II. Cooperation of PR specialists and journalists and its traps.Issues:
1. Conflict between PR specialists and journalists is illusory. The actual issue is the toxic relationship between these two groups, as they are mutually dependent.2. Do model rules of cooperation with the media exist?3. Codes of good practice can help effectively manage conflicts between these two professional groups.
III. New challenges in public relations: corporate social responsibility and PR ethics.Issues:
1. Scandals and the unethical conduct of business people force PR specialists to look for new methods of image creation which will allow to change negative opinions about private entrepreneurs and businesses.2. Today the public relations specialist has to face the negative stereotype of his own industry.3. What are sources of the negative image of PR? Ethically, or even legally, controversial PR activities are one of the reasons.
