This three hour training session is a fun, informal and interactive introduction to media engagement.
Facilitator: Karen Mason.
The session covers how to work with press officers, what makes news, how to get your research out there, practical interview tips – and most importantly, the chance to try out your new skills in front of the camera in a safe and welcoming environment.
It’s led by the University Press Office team, who all come from journalistic backgrounds, and who have helped break some of the University’s biggest research stories over the years.
The session is ideally suited to research-active staff whose areas of work are topical and will likely be of interest to the media and wider public. We tailor each participant’s training to their experience, so complete beginners through to seasoned spokespeople who just need a refresh, are all equally welcome.
The venue will be confirmed on booking. NB: a session may change nearer the time but attendees will be notified.
