This month’s PR training
PR Account Management, Writing for PR and Campaign Planning
Time spent on account management can absorb almost half of an agency’s activities and plays a major role in delivering successful PR campaigns. If you are ready to step up to managing a PR account and want to be better prepared to handle the interpersonal and strategic skills needed, then my open workshop run with the CIPR can help you.
Or if you would like me to run a tailored course in-house to prepare your staff for the account management role, then please do get in touch.
Writing Press Releases
Press release writing is an essential skill, whether it is to be published on the organisation’s website or issued to the media. Knowing how to recognise a good news story and write it in a way so that it is compelling and cuts through the clutter of other news is a skill required more than ever before and my workshops address this.
