Besides the usual, excellent writing and editing skills, I really think practicing the Golden Rule is of the utmost importance. Make sure to reply to all emails in a timely manner, even if it is obvious that the recipient didn't take time to read that beautifully crafted press release you sent. Remember, they are doing you a service by even contacting you, not the other way around. If you don't have patience with people, you should find another profession.

Relationship building

Strong Writing

Crisis communications

Also, know that public relations is not about throwing parties (those are event planners) PR is about strategic planning to assist a company.

Professional development is always good when it comes to PR.
