Octopus Group MD elected to the PRCA PR Council

We are delighted to announce that our MD Jon Lonsdale has been elected to the PRCA Council. Jon will join other newly elected PR industry leaders to discuss key industry issues such as best practice, the impact of new technology in PR and the future role of communications on business.

The PRCA fulfils and important role. It represents many of the major consultancies in the UK, and currently has over 350 agency members from around the world including the majority of the top 150 UK consultancies. The PRCA also represents over 150 in-house teams, including many of Europe’s leading corporations and UK public sector organisations, as well as individual and freelance PR and communications practitioners.

“I’m looking forward to contributing to the PRCA Council as the industry enters yet another fascinating year of change,” commented Jon. “The PRCA does important work and it will be great to bring a few ideas to the table to push the industry forward.”

In September, Octopus Group, was highlighted as one of the PR Agencies of the Future by the PRCA in recognition of its recent move to an innovative ‘Brand to Sales’ model.
