Standing out from the crowd: Tips for building relationships with journalists - Pitching: How to sell a story

At the heart of promoting any brand story we have to build relationships with Editors, Influencers and the Media and so we aim to discuss the challenges of this new working environment. How do we build relationships while communicating our client stories, and how do we interact with the various new roles that are emerging?

With the changing of the guards, shifting roles and the blurred roles between influencers and PR's: - Learn how you need to interact with Editors, PR's, Bloggers and Influencers as these lines remain blurred. Gain insight from our speakers on their new ways of working internally to adapt to the changes and keep updated on future changes.
