Course description

Managing Media Handling and Press Campaigns

Learn how to confidently engage with the media, write press releases that stand out and plan your media campaigns.

During the course, we will look at the various types of media, building your media contacts and how to make your story newsworthy.

Learn how to establish the content of the “story” to find the true value for the journalist, focussing on the human-interest angle that helps grab attention and interest.

Once the value of the story has been established, we will look at the structure of a press release by asking some questions related to who, what why, when and how?

Our leading PR experts will train you on how the press release works alongside your other media campaigns and activities.

Improve your media writing skills and be confident in what you deliver to press contacts and outlets. Learn to design press releases that are on target for your media campaigns.
