PROpenmic - dedicated to Public Relations Practitioners all over the world

If you are a public relations practitioner or even a student or an academician, I don’t know if you have heard about a social network group for public relations practitioners called ‘PROpenMic’.

Indeed in my opinion, I don’t think many Malaysians or for that matter, ASIANS are aware of such an existence of an amazing and outstanding website.

For your information, ‘PROpenMic’ is a website public relations students, faculty and practitioners can come together and share notes about public relations. I have signed in to the site and I am indeed proud to share with all of you that I think I am the first Malaysian to do so, I have also created a spot where all Malaysians can share their notes and experiences in public relations.

I have indeed realized the so called ‘WOW’ factor when I was surfing into this site. It is indeed great to see how public relations is being studied and practiced all over the world.

PROpenMic? Is a metaphor. You can step in up and speak your mind. The website’s goal is to be the social network for public relations student, faculty and practitioners worldwide. The website is ad free and nonprofit with an education focus. Already, they have members from over 50+ countries and almost 300 universities worldwide. ‘PROpenMic’ is your network for connections and learning. Ultimately, the network is about you helping others.

The site was founded by Mr. Robert French from the United States of America. He teaches public relations at Auburn University. Mr. French has been actively involved in this discipline for over 25 years with experience ranging from public relations, broadcasting and university administration to teaching.

For those of you who haven’t visited the site yet, please do! Here’s the link:


MY Malaysian friends, please do not bring a political link to ‘PROpenMic’, it has nothing to do with MIC.
