Want to land press coverage but unsure where to start? Or are your pitches being ignored? In this workshop, in association with McArthur Davies, journalist Suzanne Bearne who writes for national titles including The Guardian, The Observer and the BBC and runs The Guardian's PR and Marketing Masterclass, will explain how the media operates, what journalists are looking for from a story, and how tweaking your pitch and your approach can have a major impact in securing press coverage.

Delving into her 10 years' experience as a journalist across trade, national and consumer titles, Suzanne will offer guidance on working with the press, explain what to include in a press release, reveal how to take advantage of digital platforms, and provide tips on building relationships with both in-house and freelance journalists.

Featuring strong case-studies, this interactive session is aimed at anyone interested in securing more media coverage, whether you're a startup, an entrepreneur or a big business.
