PR ethics debate: few tickets left

Max Clifford and Mark Borkowski will argue against Vodafone comms chief Simon Lewis and George Pitcher - Curate at St Bride's in Fleet Street - on the thorny issue of whether 'PR has duty to tell the truth', in a one-off public debate.

Clifford – who has argued strongly in this publication that honesty is not necessarily the best PR policy – and Borkowski will oppose the motion. Meanwhile, Lewis and Pitcher will argue for the industry to take a more ‘ethical’ and transparent stance.

The debate will be chaired by visiting professor in PR Trevor Morris, who was formerly boss at the QBO agency and CEO of Chime’s PR division. Attendees at the event will have the opportunity to contribute to the debate and vote on the central motion.

Only fifty places remain to see this one-off debate which takes place at 6.45pm at the University of Westminster on Tuesday 20 February.

To apply, call Davina Page on T 020 8267 4755. Alternatively, email your name and full contact details to E meet.max@haymarket.com.

Tickets are £25, with all profits going to charity.
