We know you are busy and time is precious. That’s why we’ve designed this training so you will leave with tasks ticked out of the “contact the press” to-do list.
During this training, we will alternate between explanations and practise time, to allow you to have a ready-to-send press release at the end of the session!
Each trainee will be shown how to prepare:
– a clear message for the media
– a media list
– a timing strategy
– basics of a Press Release
– preparing quotes
– contact rebels for the press
– immediate post-action images to go to the press
Some pre-prepared materials will be available for you to adapt so your local media will be interested.
A strategy will be suggested that you can follow for any future actions.
⭐Why you should attend⭐
By using the media our actions reach a much wider group than just the passers-by who observe us.
We can sometimes get the readers / viewers who may be interested in XR a route to contact us via an article or image.
With practice, the media can be a very useful tool to engage local politicians.
