Public relations provides the means to communicate your ideas and get them accepted-a skill vitally necessary when dealing with new ideas. It is a way to gain support for your projects and endeavors. Generally considered a method to gain publicity, public relations has previously been subjected to severe limitations. This was a practice that lacked certain key elements. Now, because of some important discoveries in Scientology, advances have made the entire activity significantly more useful and effective. L. Ron Hubbard's refinement of public relations not only makes it essential for any group and any individual, but removes the previously inherent limitations. Although the full technology is extensive, the basic principles covered here will be of immense value to anyone with a worthwhile purpose.

snt it time that we are told the insider TRUTH regarding the intentional and unintentional cover-ups made by the big boys in Detroit. We will be booking media appearances for this Author as well as book signing events in the Author hometown as well as additional cities and states. We booked this Author over 100 media appearances in 2014. Isnt it time that we are told the insider TRUTH regarding the intentional and unintentional cover-ups made by the big boys in Detroit. An industry, the Auto Industry, driven by profits-over-principle according to many of its critics. Be prepared to buckle-up and enjoy this ride! This book is the first tell it like it is, of its kind! Why is it so difficult to tell the truth? Jason Vines starts this book with a simple question: why is it so difficult to tell the truth? Sadly, spoiler alert, he ends it with the same question. From Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton to Lance Armstrong to the IRS to Brian Williams to Bill Cosby to Tiger Woods and the NFL; why is it so painfully difficult? Vines cautions the reader up-front: Relax, this is not a book about Jesus. However, he does appear in two chapters: first as a Hispanic grandfather from Waterford, Michigan, and later as the real Prince of Peace. No, this is a book about my life in the public relations blast furnace in the automotive industry; a quickly-derailed attempt to help a friend rebuild Detroits tattered image, thwarted by the sex, lies and corruption of former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick; and, finally, trying to avoid another crisis with the number one selling book of all time. No, not Harry Potter; the Bible.
This groundbreaking study offers new insights into public relations history with a focus on the changing relationship between women and public relations, the institutionalization of public relations education, and the significance of globalization in Australia in the second half of the twentieth century. Drawing on archival and interview research, it reveals how the industry's professionalization led to the development of an occupational identity along national and gendered lines. It also challenges common misconceptions around the origins of public relations and women's early contributions and careers. Adopting a critical approach, Professionalizing public relations avoids corporatist perspectives on the historical development of public relations by focusing on the processes of professionalization and their significance for gender and education, and by situating this study in a broader global context. The findings reveal dynamic and contested conceptualizations of public relations knowledge and expertise, and the significance of historical processes for contemporary understandings of the industry.
Explore the history and practice of social work around the world This fascinating book presents a broad international survey of the development and current practices of occupational social work. Covering seven countries around the world, Global Perspectives of Occupational Social Work offers a unique cross-cultural perspective on issues of interest to social workers everywhere. From India to Ireland, issues of training, sexual harassment, and workplace health and safety are remarkably similar and intriguingly varied. Global Perspectives of Occupational Social Work describes the evolution of social work in factories and, later, in offices. When industrialization brought women into factories, owners hired nurses or governesses to guard, chaperone, and advise the young women in their employ. Since then occupational social work has sought to keep a balance between the interests of management and workers. In addition to discussing history and professional development, Global Perspectives of Occupational Social Work reveals the way professionals like you handle the same situations you face every day, including: the shift toward privatization corporate restructuring and downsizing developing alcohol and substance abuse interventions creating employee assistance programs racism and sexism in the workplace HIV/AIDS and other health problems workplace violenceCovering Australia, India, Germany, Ireland, South Africa, Israel, and the US, Global Perspectives of Occupational Social Work is a major contribution to the professional literature. Not only will this book increase international awareness, it may supply you with unique perspectives and fresh strategies for solving the problems your colleagues in Jerusalem and Pretoria also face.
