Event Testimonial for Dr. John Flackett

"John was a panelist at the CIPR Wessex ‘The Future of AI in PR’ event, introducing AI to Public Relations and Communications professionals across the region. He delivered a really engaging 15-minute presentation about the current AI landscape in language that attendees could easily understand. He also shared further valuable insights in the Q&A session at the end. The feedback from attendees has been hugely positive and I would certainly recommend John as a speaker for similar events." – Juliet Fisher, CIPR Wessex
