On a personal/professional note...
The news is out... I will take on the Presidency of the International Public Relations Association for 2021 and am really humbled to receive the trust of my peers.
It will not be a simple task to succeed to Svetlana Stavreva and the other Presidents before me, but I will continue their work to keep IPRA international, inclusive, ethical and diverse.
I strongly believe in what I wrote recently:
"𝐼𝑡 𝑡𝑎𝑘𝑒𝑠 𝑎 𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑚𝑢𝑛𝑖𝑐𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛 𝑝𝑟𝑜𝑓𝑒𝑠𝑠𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑎𝑙 𝑡𝑜 𝑛𝑎𝑣𝑖𝑔𝑎𝑡𝑒 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑠𝑒 𝑤𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑟𝑠, 𝑏𝑢𝑖𝑙𝑑 𝑏𝑟𝑖𝑑𝑔𝑒𝑠, 𝑒𝑥𝑝𝑙𝑎𝑖𝑛 𝑠𝑡𝑟𝑎𝑡𝑒𝑔𝑖𝑒𝑠 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑚𝑎𝑘𝑒 𝑎𝑛 𝑖𝑚𝑝𝑎𝑐𝑡. 𝑊𝑒 𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑜𝑛𝑙𝑦 𝑝𝑟𝑜𝑓𝑒𝑠𝑠𝑖𝑜𝑛 𝑤𝑖𝑡ℎ 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑠𝑘𝑖𝑙𝑙𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑛𝑎𝑣𝑖𝑔𝑎𝑡𝑒 𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑝𝑙𝑒𝑥 𝑟𝑒𝑙𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑠ℎ𝑖𝑝𝑠 𝑤𝑖𝑡ℎ 𝑎 𝑚𝑢𝑙𝑡𝑖𝑡𝑢𝑑𝑒 𝑜𝑓 𝑘𝑒𝑦 𝑎𝑢𝑑𝑖𝑒𝑛𝑐𝑒𝑠."
The world needs our skills and experience more than ever in these challenging times!

Infograpify - the graphics & presentation library
Silly name but still - Infograpify is an extensive library of presentation templates, icons and graphics which will allow you to speed up your creative process.
What does it do?
The library has well over 3000 "infographic" templates which are all editable and searchable by topic. The screenshot above is one of the results you will get when searching for "risk" in the database.
The principle is simple - log in, download what you need in different formats and adapt to your needs.
We all have to make these stunning, clear and persuasive presentations from time to time, right?
Having access to a library of professionally pre-designed graphics and complete slide sets will save you hours of fiddling around with settings and design features.
While I still like to make my presentations personal and my own, these templates allow me to quickly get my story arc ready and then concentrate on the content rather than the graphics.
All the infographics included in the library are full vector files, meaning that they are extremely high quality, remain editable at all times, and any element can be changed, at any time.
I use Keynote but the file types are compatible with Powerpoint, Google Slides, Adobe and Photoshop. And of course you can change colors with just a few clicks and deliver on-brand presentation designs.
- They have a special going on for a single user and a payment of $49 for lifetime access and all future updates.
- 5 users (let's say your team) will cost $199 - one payment for lifetime access and all future updates.
English, but your content can be in other languages, of course.
