PR is no longer about schmoozing Fleet Street journalists over boozy lunches (although that does sound fun). When mastered correctly, media coverage can save you thousands of pounds on advertising. Join us for this interactive session to learn how to identify stories, how to find the right media sources, write a press release, and how to pitch your ideas to get those all-important column inches.
