Getting the media to work for your museum.

4 December – Media Masterclass
10am-4pm, Winterbourne House and Garden, 58 Edgbaston Park Road, Edgbaston B15 2RT

Do you know what journalists are looking for?  Can you promote your museum?

Award-winning former BBC journalist Sarah Bishop takes you on a journey of discovery:

  • Tips on making the news – spotting stories even during quiet times
  • How to write press releases
  • Handling the media
  • Interview technique for TV and radio
  • Tips on creating the perfect soundbite

Sarah will share the secrets of 25 years’ experience in newspapers, radio and television – so you’ll never need to ask a journalist “What are you going to ask me?” ever again!

This session is a condensed version of the ‘In the Spotlight’ series.

Quotes from previous participants:

‘Useful tips about presenting yourself and organisation to the media, and how to navigate questions and responses effectively with greater confidence’

‘The session had a very fun atmosphere and I learned a lot of great tips’

‘Informative, explains everything step by step.  Good fun.  Didn’t feel under pressure to get it right first time’
