CIPR research shows an industry striving to be seen as a profession without entirely embracing professional standards. Following a PR Week article on the topic, Austin Brailey and Phil Szomszor discuss whether PR can be compared to other professions - like accountancy and law - and whether that's even desirable in the first place.
