31st African Public Relations Association annual conference
APRA Rwanda 2019 | Theme: Africa & Storytelling


The African Public Relations Association (APRA) will be having its annual conference in Kigali, Rwanda May 13-17 with the theme “Africa & Storytelling”. Based on this, some sub-themes have been identified to enable potential speakers choose areas in which they may wish to make in-depth presentations.

This year’s conference will be exploring the exciting and unique African communication culture of storytelling in addressing the current issues and challenges of public relations and development in the continent. Presenters/speakers are expected to discuss compelling story telling and content generation, strategic positioning, ethical practices, fake news, alternative facts, crisis management, dispute reputation, security awareness, competitiveness, social responsibility, self-regulation and a heightened focus on global governance initiatives.

You may wish to consider any of the listed subject areas for your presentation as many of our members are regularly confronted with such issues in the discharge of their professional responsibilities. The list is not exhaustive, and other suggestions within the context of the theme and sub-theme are welcome.

We invite members to choose topics that best suit to their areas of specialization as well as to nominate speakers for the above sub-themes based on the stated guidelines below.
