Media Skills Workshops

Making the Most of Your Local Media – half day course

In the current difficult climate it is more important than ever that Law Centres and others raise their profile as experts in their local communities.  You may want to campaign on current legal issues, highlight the effect of the legal aid cuts or comment on social policy.   This half day session will help you to spot the everyday activities in your organisation that can easily be turned into stories for your local media. Learn how to build a relationship with your local media, promote your stories to them and deal with media enquiries.  During the session you will draft a real news release, ready to take back to your workplace and send to your local media.  Follow up support will then be available from the trainer to ensure this goes smoothly.

The course caters for 6-12 peoples and can be arranged at a venue to suit the participants.  Fees are negotiable.
