What The Media Want From You

April 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

https://zoom.us/j/183410123 (please arrive early)

This workshop is for any rebel who might land up speaking to journalists/presenters and for any rebel who might get a camera / microphone shoved in their face whilst at an action!

This practical session is designed to give you an insight into what the print and broadcast media want from you, what drives their thinking and makes them ask the questions they do.

With this knowledge you are forewarned; better able to prepare in advance to give them what they want, and importantly, get yourself invited back!

If possible please bring a smart-phone / tablet with the ability to record a conversation to the training. (In addition to the one you’re using to access Zoom). Please make sure you’re familiar with using the record / play-back function.

Trainers :
Jo Bucklow worked as a Social Action Broadcaster for the BBC and commercial broadcast industry. Amongst other things she trained the not-for-profit sector how to access the media to further their aims.
Mim Black and Jamie Kelsey (both from XR UK Speakers team) have contributed to the design of this training and will be supporting this workshop.


We believe that the Rebellion can constructively utilise the Covid lockdown to empower ourselves to be better Rebels. We can meet to share knowledge, build our skills, and keep our community alive, so we can return united and stronger when the time comes💚

Please sign in early in order to start the training at 7 PM promptly! We ask all participants to read this document about how we create and hold spaces beforehand.
