Personal Experience/Information:
I was a public relations practitioner in Malaysia and have always been interested in the roles practitioners play towards the reputation of their profession and how public relations affects organisations as well as the community. Currently, I am employed with a Malaysian university, Universiti Putra Malaysia, as a (soon-to-be) lecturer in corporate communication and organisational communication.

I am fortunate to have both professional and academic experiences in the area of public relations, as the experiences I have attained would provide me with a diverse knowledge in the field. Based on my personal experience, I believe public relations practitioners in Malaysia have yet to reach their full potential as contributors to the development of the nation.
