Hall of Fame Speeches

The Hall of Fame Award is the Arthur W. Page Society’s highest recognition, honoring men and women whose esteemed careers have taken them to the summit of the public relations field. Created in 1984, the annual award honors a leading senior level practitioner for career achievement and outstanding contributions to the profession. Inductees into the Hall of Fame have demonstrated a strong commitment to the Page Principles throughout their careers, thereby contributing to the advancement of the role of the Chief Public Relations Officer.

Each year, the individual inducted into the Hall of Fame is honored at a special Awards Dinner held during the Annual Conference of the Arthur W. Page Society. The recipient of the award is asked to present acceptance remarks to the communication leaders at the Page Society. These remarks include powerful observations and insights on the emerging trends in the industry and the opportunities for the profession. Speeches by Hall of Fame winners have included such topics as authenticity and differentiation, the age of meaningful connections, the importance of face-to-face in a Facebook world, and the renaissance in public relations.
