COURSE DESCRIPTION
Experiential, active and engaging workshop. You will learn what the media wants from PR and enjoy crafting your own press release – ready to send!
Why would you need this workshop?
Every organisation needs to understand and utilise public relations. Because if you’re not in control of your PR – you’re playing a dangerous game of chance. People (including the media) will make up their own minds – and they will probably get it wrong! Take back the opportunity to influence and get your positive message across. What’s more – you can start enjoying FREE PUBLICITY!
About the workshop: 
This is a fast-paced workshop that is highly experiential, with lots of discussions and learning points, Bring with you your PR frustrations, your questions and successes to share. It’s packed with tools and techniques, simple processes and a mind-change that will transform the way you look at PR (to get much better results!) We will also be analysing your local media so that you understand who to send the releases to, and what makes a great PR.
Our aim is that everyone will be able to walk out of this course with a press release written and ready to send, and know who to send it to. (Note: this does depend on the availability of appropriate news)
