Dating back to 1961, the IPR Annual Distinguished Lecture and Awards Dinner is IPR’s biggest fundraiser to honor those who have made a difference in the profession. Past speakers have included Cheryl Boone Isaacs (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences), Geoff Colvin (Fortune), Lee Rainie (Pew Research), Harold Burson (founder of Burson-Marsteller, now Burson Cohn Wolfe), Dana Perino (former White House Press Secretary, now Fox News), Neal Shapiro (President of WNET, former President of NBC News), Beth Comstock (former General Electric), and Mark Leibovich (The New York Times Magazine). More than 320 people attend this annual event, including our prestigious Board of Trustees that includes senior-level leaders and executives from global organizations.
