Public relations isn't just about sending out press releases and dealing with media on behalf of clients. Every interaction with a client or customer is an opportunity for public relations. It's an opportunity to express, expose and grow your brand. This includes phone calls with suppliers, potential customers, existing clients, etc.
Those who are interacting with your customers/clients on behalf of your company are ambassadors for your brand. If an appointment is missed or they don't get back to someone, it reflects on your brand as a whole. Someone who has an unsatisfactory experience is more likely to go out and tell ten friends about what a bad time they had with your brand. Even worse, they'll put it on Twitter and Facebook.
All employees need to remember that a customer centred approach will lead to growing the overall brand.
