Media and communication skills for academia and the public sector

Anyone working in Public Relations in academia or the public sector will know that effective commmunication is a team effort involving people at every level in the organisation.

When faced with a journalist's notebook, or worse still a mic or camera many people fail to get their message across because they lack the necessary skills or confidence to work with the media. These workshoips are designed to help people at all levels - from the Board down - to make the most of the opportunities media exposure can offer.
