PR professional Marie-Noëlle Elissac-Foy, Director of the public relations consultancy The Talent Factory, has become the first Chartered PR professional in Mauritius.

Marie-Noëlle was awarded the Chartered PR Practitioner status by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), based in the UK, after completing an online assessment on 11 September 2020.  Marie-Noëlle was one of eight professionals undertaking the assessment, with other professionals participating on the day based in Canada, Egypt and the UK.

Marie-Noëlle Elissac-Foy, Director of The Talent Factory comments: “I am humbled to join a community of more than 360 Chartered PR Practitioners around the world. My Chartered Status is above all an assurance that I will continue to practice to the highest professional and ethical standards of the profession. The assessment itself is a daunting yet enriching experience. The assessment spans over a whole day and you must demonstrate your work ethics, strategic thinking and leadership skills. This Chartered Status puts us, PR professionals, on the same status as other chartered professions. Today, more than ever, Public Relations must be seen as a strategic management function, the added value to an organisation’s success and sustainability. Now, I can only encourage the talented PR professionals of Mauritius to join the club!

Samantha Seewoosurrun MCIPR, Founder of the CIPR network in Mauritius and Member of the CIPR International Committee, commented: “Having launched the CIPR network in Mauritius in March 2019, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Marie-Noëlle has attained Chartered Status, which represents the epitome of professional excellence in the PR industry globally. I would like to warmly congratulate her on her achievement on behalf of CIPR.”

The PR industry is in constant evolution, and I would strongly encourage other PR professionals to join CIPR in order to build their knowledge and update their skills. Since COVID-19 we have witnessed an acceleration in the use of digital and AI in the PR industry, which is a key area of focus for CIPR, and we believe it is important for professionals to keep pace with the latest trends.

“I am also working with CIPR International to expand CIPR’s African footprint, with the first pan-African webinar for PR professionals on “Upskilling for the Future of Comms” held in collaboration with Africa Communications Week on 15 September. We will be pleased to offer PR professionals in Mauritius opportunities to network with their peers on the African continent and beyond, and we will be hosting further trainings through webinars in the coming weeks.”
