Communication is Power



By Phil Andrews, President – Black Public Relations Society-New York

Effective Communication is one of the most critical skills that one could ever develop, and has led to the development of a multi-billion dollar industry.  Today on a national level we can see how ineffective communication can be the downfall of leaders in a variety of entities such as government and private sector. Some of the greatest people on the planet have developed keen insight and listening skills to help them develop the capability to use communication in a manner which enhances all aspects of their lives.

Public Relations and Excellent Communication requires knowledge of certain skills, intuition, and artistry.

Practical knowledge combined with study and experience has the ability to take our mindset and skillset in the fine area public relations and communication to a higher level along with our observation of the market’s sentiment of what we are trying to communicate to society in our use of public relations and communication.

It is our goal at the Black Public Relations Society-New York (BPRS-NY) that we help to raise the bar as Image Makers and Strategist and usher in a new generation of Public Relations Professionals onto to the local, regional, national, and global scene needed to communicate the unique messages that our time requires to be not just good communicators, but ascend to the status a cut above the rest!  We would also like to see more existing practitioners access the C-Suite through diversity initiatives, as we are well aware that when corporations, institutions, and government entities not only speak of diversity but live it through their mission, values, and goals the C-Suite moves beyond a dream to reality.
