Books on property & construction PR

In January Liz Male and I signed a contract with Routledge for a pair of books on property and construction PR which will be published in February 2020.  The books are to be edited compilations of essays on PR, each covering a specific aspect of the property sector.

This page is intended for those interested in contributing a chapter to what we hope will be regarded as the property and construction PR ‘bible’.
