Pitching Broadcast PR To Clients
In our experience, getting coverage on television or radio is often the icing on the cake for a client.  However, when it comes to budgets it can be dismissed as an unaffordable “extra”. This workshop will highlight some of the many broadcast PR options available and how they can add fantastic value for money when used efficiently. We’ll discuss costs, case studies and how to maximise ROI.   Options include radio days, TV and online sell-ins, PR video production, streaming, technical services and media training.  You’ll leave the workshop with a list of questions to ask clients who considering broadcast.  We'll also give you the answers for questions they will ask you. 1630-1730 on Zoom.
When: 20 May
Using Celebrities And Third Parties For A Broadcast PR Campaign
Thinking of using a celebrity or a third party spokesperson in your next campaign?   Without question such a strategy will result in more coverage on television and radio.   We estimate you can expect at least 40% MORE opportunities. This workshop takes an in depth look at what you can expect when you hire a spokesperson and what will be expected of you.   We’ve got loads of hints and tips from what makes a good spokesperson, to the questions you should always ask before engaging one. Using real campaign examples we’ll  explain how you can get the most out of whoever’s fronting your campaign.  We’ll even share our spokesperson contract with you. 1630-1730 on Zoom.
When: 1 June
PR Podcasts, the Basics
In our view podcasts are having something of an overdue renaissance. There have never been so many available and the quality has arguably never been higher. But, with so much competition how do you make sure your podcast gets the attention it deserves? Our workshop will look at what makes a great podcast including content, optimum duration, sound effects and music. We’ll also examine what you can do to promote your podcast, once it's finished and ready to be found.
When: 17 June
The Perfect Broadcast PR Spokesperson
Willing, opinionated and entertaining.  These are just some of the qualities radio and television journalists value in spokespeople.   Broadcast journalists expect excellent interviewees who can cope with the pressures of  live and pre-recorded interviews. But of course, it’s not just about what the journalist wants.  The perfect spokesperson will be able to do what the journalist wants  AND weave in their key messages and brand mentions. Most corporate spokespeople are media trained before appearing on-air, but our workshop gives you some of the theory behind the practice. 1630-1730 on Zoom.
When: 29 June
Dissection of a Broadcast PR Campaign
Based on our own experience, we demonstrate how we secure coverage on TV, radio and online. We use a range of different case studies,  breaking down the key elements to some of our recent, most successful broadcast PR campaigns. The case studies reflect different budgets and areas of broadcast PR.  From an all-singing and dancing multimedia campaign, to a single service radio day, with optional TV. This workshop has been rescheduled from 1st July.
When: 13 July
In The Mood For Broadcast PR
Are your clients interested in seeing their companies on television and radio?  Or perhaps they prefer to take editorial control with their own podcast series or online videos? Our digital workshop will talk through the basics of broadcast PR.  In particular we will look at the different vehicles available to get a brand on-air.  We will cover radio days, TV coverage, video and podcast production and media training.   The goal is to anticipate questions you, the PR professional, are likely to be asked by your clients or boss, the provide you with the answers. This is top line stuff to hopefully inspire you to talk to clients (or, if you're inhouse, your boss) about what might be possible for your future PR campaigns. 1630-1730 on Zoom.

When: 27 July
