DIY PR Workshop
Event on 2014-11-12 09:30:00
Enterprising Barnsley invites you to attend the FREE DIY PR Workshop on Wednesday November 12th at Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC) delivered by Kate Betts of Capital B Media.
Seasoned journalist and PR consultant Kate Betts, of Capital B Media, will show you how you can do your own public relations and gain media coverage for little or no cost. She will explain how you can use the media’s need for stories, for people to comment on stories and their need for pictures to your advantage. She will debunk a lot of PR myths and show how you really can do it yourself with a bit of time and effort.
The seminar is aimed at businesses wanting to raise their profile and enhance their reputation using local and regional radio, TV and newspapers. The tips on offer can also be used elsewhere, such as in the national media, B2B media and the business press.
It will cover how the local media works and how you can use it to your advantage, how to write a press release that will get used and what the media is looking for with pictures.
Kate is a media “insider” with more than 20 years’ experience as a journalist in radio, TV and newspapers. She has worked as a freelance for BBC Radio 4 and taught print and broadcast journalism at the University of Sheffield. She now helps organisations deal with the media, through offering interview technique training and PR consultancy.
This event is free to Barnsley businesses.
