Manchester PR agency, Roland Dransfield, to present Improving the image of the Gambling industry.

The Gambling industry is in crisis, with political pressure, official censure and shattered public confidence knocking angrily at the door. Roland Dransfield’s most senior communications experts will share with you the key ingredients required for creating a positive communications strategy that cleans-up your reputation and boosts public perception in an age where authenticity and transparency are crucial.


The Gambling industry is in crisis, with political pressure, official censure and shattered public confidence knocking angrily at the door. The road out of this potential catastrophe is to go beyond mere compliance. A new era of gambling beckons – one where Corporate responsibility blends seamlessly with an industry-wide CSR strategy and is underpinned by tangible and demonstrable Compassion for those who fall through the safety net we establish.

To shift public and political perception, a sea of change is required – a new layer of self-regulation, above and beyond current legislation that blends these three C’s. But perhaps most importantly, operators not only need to clean up their act, but be seen to clean up their act.
