Effective engagement with the media

It's vital to any business. But sometimes dealing with the media can be challenging, confusing, uncertain - and laden with risk.

Get it right though, and it can be one of the most powerful things you can do.

As a professional with over 15 years' experience in media relations, I can help you think through your approach to the media, whether it's for a one-off story or a longer/ongoing campaign.

I have excellent media contacts and a track record of securing high impact media coverage across outlets, from national press to broadcast and from regional press to trade publications.

I can help you:

  • Write press releases, story and article pitches, media briefs
  • Articulate key messages and themes
  • Identify what will have the highest media impact
  • Uncover things you might not have considered as "stories"
  • Design and help execute impactful surveys and research
  • Proactively engage with the media
  • Set up interviews and briefings
  • Help you think through areas of sensitivity or risk
  • Manage crises and issues
  • Link media communications to internal and client communications
  • Maximise impact through coordinated social media activity
  • Check that you have effective media monitoring and evaluation in place

The media is a whole world of its own. I will help you navigate through it successfully and with confidence!
