B2BMEDIATRAINING is not tied to any PR consultancy, rather it works with a number of public relations practitioners to provide media training services for their clients.
Brian says: “Ultimately, when it comes to talking to the media, my training course is all about delivering YOUR key messages, based on your own strategy and goals. As well as teaching you the basic ‘must-haves’ for dealing with the press, including how to leverage existing corporate material, with over 30 years’ experience as a business journalist I can guide you on how to select the elements that will be of the greatest interest to the media you are most likely to encounter. I will also explain how to structure a story in order to get your message across more effectively.”
