From the Paper:

"Communication is perhaps one of the most essential skills a PR manager possess (Bruning & Ledingham, 2000). Through communication a PR manager learns to create messages that will entice and attract the target audience. Through communication efforts the PR manager sends ideas and pitches to the public or the target audience to entice them to take an active interest in the organization or cause the PR official represents. It is important that the PR manner use communication as a tool for building relationships with the public and between the public and the organization the PR manager represents."
