The project was initiated to fill a vacuum in the training for those PROs who wanted to progress further within public sector bodies, possibly as far as chief executive.
Course co-ordinator Lynne Mee said: 'This is to ensure we can go the next stage in our careers.'
Among the trainers at this latest event is north-east-based vicar and management trainer, the Reverend Stephen Brown. He aims to show that, through studying dialogue from films, negotiating techniques can be improved.
Other speakers at the event include IPR Local Government Group chair Carl Welham and Jim Odling-Smee, Hertfordshire County Council director of communications.
Caroline McKinlay, Nottingham City Council head of corporate affaris, and James Flynn, a Marina Pirotta Communications director, are also holding sessions at the event.
