The resultant inefficiencies and reputation risks which carry huge financial implications are avoidable. This two-day summit is a strategic intervention by the Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations and a coalition of organizations committed to the accelerated development of Nigeria to help all officers and managers of organizations and establishments operating in Nigeria learn efficient ways of working with public agencies, customers, the corporate community, and other stakeholders both within and outside the country so they can maintain good financial health and robust reputation for their employers while promoting public good .
