We are thrilled to confirm that for the third year running, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has added more csuite podcast episodes to it Continuing Professional Development programme (CPD).

The CIPR states that CPD puts its members in the driving seat of their own career, gaining the knowledge and skills they need to progress.

Over 2000 of the CIPR’s members take part in CPD, which is the only route for them to become a Chartered PR Practitioner.

Eleven episodes of our csuite podcast series, that we produced over the last twelve months, have been added to the programme, meaning that those CIPR members taking part in CPD will receive 5 CPD points for listening to each podcast if they log it at their My CPD.

The episodes added to the programme are:
