There was one motion before the recent PRII AGM. As proposed by National Council, it was overwhelming agreed to honour Padraig Slattery FPRII with Life Fellowship of the Institute.
Currently Chairman of Teneo PSG, Padraig set up Slattery Communications in 1983 and developed a business that has evolved and sustained itself over the decades since.
In 2014 Slattery Communications merged with Pembroke Communications to form PSG Communications, which was then acquired by Teneo in 2016.
Padraig is very highly regarded as a public relations practitioner, as a mentor and as a businessman who has grown successful and sustained businesses in public relations over three and a half decades. He is also an innovator, having led the way in developing the PR potential of sport.
He also showed the value of embracing change, being one of the early Irish agencies to engage international partnerships and then merging with Pembroke Communications.
Life Fellowship is the highest honour that the PRII can bestow on a Full member. Life Fellows have championed, by example, the highest standards and implementation of the profession. Padraig Slattery will be presented with his Life Fellowship at a ceremony in the coming months.
