2021 The Global PR and Communication Model
We have the pleasure to share with you The Global PR & Communication Model, developed by Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management in partnership with Corporate Excellence – Centre for Reputation Leadership and with the sponsor contribution of LLYC, a global communications and public affairs consulting firm.
The Model defines the roadmap and building blocks of the functions of PR and Communication, to promote its contribution to the creation of differentiation, reputation, trust and social legitimacy.
This model has been built with the collaborative and participatory efforts of a network of 1,400 professionals from 46 countries on 5 different regions. This has been a global consensus-based research on the present and future of the role and value of public relations and communications management.
The Model consolidates the Stockholm Accords, 2010, and the Melbourne Mandate, 2012, and integrates the Global Capability Framework for Public Relations and Communication Management developed in partnership with Huddersfield University in 2018.
We aspire that organizations and professionals worldwide, who understand the strategic importance of this model, will be able to improve the business decision-making process, promoting a real and authentic connection with their stakeholders, and promoting differential leadership in the future post-COVID-19-world.

For 10 years, the Global Alliance has created a space for the world’s practitioners and academics to redefine the role of the profession and the professional, and The Global PR andCommunication Model brings this work together in a simple, powerful way. Building on the GA’sMelbourne Mandate and Global CapabilitiesFramework, it give us a compass: pointing the way for PR and communication to connect an organization’s purpose with the outcomes that drive business value.”

“Finally, a global tool for advancing PR and Strategic Communication has arrived”
Peter Mutie, CEO, Peterson IntegratedCommunications Ltd; Past President Africa PublicRelations Association
“For a number of years public relations and communications work has turned its attention almost entirely to the management of intangibles, and and this will tend to deepen in the future. This is strongly linked to the creation of new narratives, which are the basis for the construction of a new role for the communicator and PR professional at all levels. In this sense, the update and the global connection around a cohesive narrative, as The Global PR & Communication Model does, is fundamental”
Paulo Nassar, President of Aberje – Brazilian Association for Business Communication; Full Professor at School ofCommunications and Arts, University of São Paulo (ECA-USP)
