About this Event

What is it about?
PR can seem mysterious to some and unattainable to others, as most organisations don’t have a dedicated PR expert on the team. In this session, you’ll gain an understanding of the power of PR and what simple things you can do to raise your profile.

You’ll look at:

  • How to work with the media; what makes a story and why your story should be covered.
  • The process of getting media attention – the purpose of a good press release and what it should cover.
  • And you’ll explore the kind of content press and media want from you, key timings, and how to build relationships with local press.

What will you gain?

  • Understanding what PR can do for you
  • Skills in writing an excellent press release
  • Guidance on how to work with local press

Who is it for?
The session will be pitched at those who would like to build on a basic knowledge of PR and communications.
