In this course, you will explore contemporary communication management strategies and techniques used by Public Relations professionals for community engagement. You will develop practical and conceptual skills in relation to the trends, issues and processes involved in consultation, project planning and implementation, and the inclusion of publics in an organisation's decision-making.
