CIPR honours Lord Digby Jones

The CIPR used its Fifth World PR Festival earlier this week to announce it would be awarding the CIPR President's Medal to trade and investment minister Lord Digby Jones for his work with UK businesses.

The event also saw Philip Dewhurst, PR chief of Russian gas giant Gazprom, reject allegations from Nigerian delegates that Gazprom 'turned off countries' gas supplies at the bidding of the Kremlin'.

'In my 18 months at Gazprom I can honestly say I've seen no interference from the Kremlin,' said Dewhurst.

Other speakers at the two-day event included Mike Lee, comms chief of London's 2012 Olympic bid, and Communication Group UK CEO Michael Hayman.
