DevoConnect joins PRCA for training and skills offerings
The PRCA is pleased to announce that DevoConnect has joined the PRCA to take advantage of its national reach, training offerings, and skills development.
DevoConnect is at the forefront of devolution and helps companies and individuals communicate their ambitions and help shape and influence future decision making. It was founded by Gill Morris MPRCA, who has 30 years’ experience of parliamentary and public affairs work as the owner and CEO of Connect Communications. She won the Outstanding Contribution Award at the PRCA Public Affairs Awards in 2014.
Gill Morris MPRCA, Founder and CEO, DevoConnect, said: “As someone who has always been at the forefront of transparency, fighting for ethical lobbying and promoting professional standards across the industry, I wanted my new agency to join the PRCA. DevoConnect turned to the PRCA because it has a national reach and ability to represent all types of agency across the country.
"I have a long association and friendship with the PRCA spanning 20 years or more, and I greatly value and appreciate its support and encouragement for my new enterprise. I hope to play a full and active role in the future of the PRCA and am really pleased that my new team and the DevoConnect Network will also benefit from our membership to the PRCA through its strong commitment to training and skills development.”
Francis Ingham MPRCA, Director General, PRCA, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome DevoConnect to the PRCA on both a professional and personal level. I have known Gill for many years and she is one of the real trailblazers of the industry, so it is very gratifying to work with her in her new guise as Founder and CEO of DevoConnect.”
