Welcome to PR Academy

Welcome to PR Academy. We are in the business of communication education, training and consultancy.

What makes us different is that we can help you with understanding the ideas and concepts that will enable you to deliver strategies and campaigns with real edge. We’re talking about the clever stuff like understanding the psychology of communication, culture and behaviour.

Of course, it is vitally important to possess the practical skills needed to successfully deliver a strategy or campaign, and we can help you with this too.

Thinking of studying with us? Our courses and masterclasses are taught in central London and some are online. We can also help with designing in-house training courses specifically for your team. Take a look at what we have to offer and give us a call on +44 (0)1622 684766 or email info@pracademy.co.uk for more information.
