PR is often seen as a ‘dark art’ or ‘spin’ but in reality good PR relies on a clear and honest approach to communication with the right people to reach audiences and networks.

PR in the time of social media (and indeed during a crisis) is challenging and with the noise of information out there, it can be overwhelming and tricky to know where your work fits in.

This online workshop aims to explain the difference between PR and marketing, demystify the art of PR to help you get the maximum benefit from it now and in the future.

It can be confusing, but it is still essential to know the ins-and-outs of how PR can…

As part of the workshop there will be a participatory element based on your own projects. This will enable you to identify PR potential early and integrate opportunities into your strategy and project plans effectively. You will also have the opportunity to work on the wording that helps make your work/project suitable for a press audience.
