Get publicity and media coverage
for your message, organisation or yourself
Do you want to get free publicity for your business? Don’t know where to start? Have you sent out media releases and received no response?
When you get the right media coverage, your sales can double (or triple), you gain new customers and you can position yourself as a leader in the market place.
However, if you don't know the tactics of a publicity/public relations (PR) strategy or how to write an effective media release, you won’t get the results that will make a difference.

In this seminar, you'll learn the science behind an effective PR strategy
including writing media releases that get results, how to approach
journalists, how to write articles and case studies for the media, and clever online tactics.

Catriona was excellent. Very entertaining, full of knowledge and remarkably pleased to share her tips as a true professional."
