The PRCA is strengthening its support of virtual agencies by opening a new Business Centre.
Based in the PRCA’s south London offices, and available exclusively to PRCA Members, the PRCA Business Centre is open weekdays, 09:00-18:00.
The Centre offers seating, power banks and direct access to PRCA resources, along with food and drink facilities. Private meeting rooms can also be provided upon request, giving practitioners the opportunity to organise and host remote meetings.
Members can book space for free by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a time slot in the Centre. This a huge perk to the freelance and virtual PR community within the PRCA.
Brittany Golob, publishing editor at Transform magazine has tried out the space and said: ‘As opposed to sitting in a crowded Starbucks to get work done and make business calls, the PRCA’s new Business Centre is a great for remote working. I found it convenient and comfortable, and I enjoyed the jelly beans too!’
The PRCA is requesting feedback from all members on which resources can be added to further optimise the space. Suggestions can be sent to the same email as above, or via Twitter at @PRCA_UK.
Francis Ingham, director general of the PRCA, said: ‘We’re always looking for new ways to offer our members more, be it access to online resources, training from renowned industry voices, or, in this case, a physical space from which to work from.
‘With virtual agencies on the rise, and more PR and communications professionals working remotely, our new, fully equipped Business Centre is the ideal space for members to come in and complete their work while on the go.’
