An Honest Day’s Work: True Tales of a Life in PR, recently published, tells the story of Chris Atkins, who had a ringside seat to the frequently perilous and often hilarious public relations milestones of the past three decades. As a senior executive at some of the largest and most respected public relations agencies and companies in the world, Atkins handled almost every type of crisis imaginable, from plane crashes to corporate scandals to a memorial service for the world’s wealthiest black entrepreneur. His stories are funny and introspective for people entering into the field, and will strike a chord with any professional services veteran.

Chris is a member of the Arthur W. Page Society, and a past trustee of the Institute for Public Relations. He is the co-author of a book on corporate reputation called Image Wars: Protecting Your Company When There’s No Place to Hide, (1989, John Wiley & Sons) and An Honest Day’s Work: True Tales of a Life in PR. He also serves on the MA in Corporate Communication, Baruch College/CUNY Advisory Board. Read full bio.
