Meet The Media returns to Zoom later this month with a stellar line up of guest speakers.

Meet the Media is back by popular demand. Our annual sell-out event Meet The Media returns on Zoom on Thursday 22nd April from 11am – 12:30pm. This digital webinar offers an insight into the world of local and national media and how to get started in building quality relationships to benefit your business.

Good press can be critical for the success of small businesses and can really take your brand to the next level. Media attention lets people know that your business exists, develops your reputation, and can be cost-effective. The effects of COVID-19 have and continue to be far-reaching. Utilising the press and social media can help you to re-evaluate and plan your next steps as the country prepares to come out of lockdown. New products, services, website, social media platform, premises, staff appointments – it’s all news and can help to put your brand name on the map.

At Meet the Media, you’ll be learning what goes on behind the scenes from our panel of journalists and media and PR experts. On hand to share practical hints and tips on how to promote your business in newspapers, websites, social media, radio stations, TV and podcasts, scroll down to find out more about our panel.
