Influence Live – book now

Influence magazine will be coming to life at a new event this January featuring the thought-provoking content that makes the print edition unique.

The first confirmed speaker is Ralf Little who will be interviewed by CIPR President, Sarah Hall.

The actor will discuss the social media minefield of celebrities with opinions and whether having more than 100,000 followers on Twitter means that he has a responsibility to voice his opinions.

Influence editor, Rob Smith, said: “Over the last two years Influence has built a reputation for new and inventive coverage of the profession we all love. We’re really excited at the prospect of a live magazine as a new way of speaking with our readers.”

The afternoon event will be held on Tuesday 30th January with a discount for members of the CIPR.

We’re also offering the first 50 tickets at an early bird rate – £64 for CIPR members and £127.30 for non members – but you’ll need to be quick as, once these tickets are gone, normal pricing will take effect.
