The IPBN is very proud to launch a new section opened to our existing and new members only. In partnership with our new member and executive partner, Sam Pinnington from Polaris PR, we are offering our members the chance to conduct an interview and publish a press release about your company, challenges, successes. This will be advertised across all our channels. In a second step and to be discussed with Sam, Polaris PR can then also help you publish it to external local and international media.
