Is the press release dead? Does PR still work? What media are people consuming and how do you get your story on their plate? Have newsrooms changed? What is the best approach for working with modern newsrooms? How do you maximise the media “modern-style”?
This event will explore the new ways that newsrooms operate (radio, print, digital and TV), their drivers and their priorities. We will help you discover the new definition of newsworthy, how to get your story in front of journalists, how to build relationships and how to add value to your journalist contacts.
Join us for networking and a panel discussion about maximising the media modern-style.
