Coming up

This month, I’m running courses in: Creativity in PR, Writing for Public Relations, Account Management.

And coming up are:

Account Management

Good account management can make or break public relations work and the role is central in agency and is now more evident in-house as teams adopt a client-focussed approach. This course provides strategies to help account managers keep on top of their workload and advice on how to build a good working relationship with clients whilst managing junior staff and delivering against KPI’s.
