How to do your own PR - Masterclass

Includes one-to-one work to write a winning press release and a tailored media contacts master list.


Getting your business featured in newspapers, BBC News and trade magazines is publicity that money simply can’t buy.

In the day-long ‘How to Do Your Own PR Masterclass’ award winning journalist Mary Murtagh builds on the insider knowledge shared with delegates in the basic ‘How to Do Your Own PR’ workshop.

The Masterclass takes the training to the next level where Mary works one to one with each delegate to create a winning press release that journalists will love.

The workshop also covers:

  • Brainstorming what stories each delegate has in their business
  • How to use the news agenda to your advantage
  • Using a news hook to get the media’s attention
  • A handout to take away with a bespoke media contacts masterlist for each delegate identifying key media with the aim of raising profile of business and the entrepreneur behind it, attracting new customers and generating sales

The workshop is fun and full of vital information you won’t find in any marketing book or PR website. It is a mixture of presentations, discussion and practical hands-on training.

Participants walk away with a simple toolkit of skills to get the best for their business out of the media.

Feedback from previous courses includes: “One of the three best courses I have done in my career spanning 25 years” and “Great workshop. I’ve got an interview with my local radio station lined up as a result of following your advice so thanks Mary”.

Delegates will be asked to complete a pre-course questionnaire so the training is tailored to each individual business.

There are only eight places available on this workshop so early booking is advisable.
