Media Panel Workshop – April 15, 2015

Breaking Down Barriers: Improving the Relationships Between PR Professionals & Journalists

“The conflict between Romeo and Juliet can be compared to the relationship between journalists and public relations professionals. They rely on one another, but there are many forces that split them apart,” says blogger Adreanne Peters.

Although the two professions have different objectives at times, understanding one another is one of the most critical skills for successful PR professionals to have when working with journalists. This session, Breaking Down Barriers, will aid in breaking down the barriers between the two professions to help create a mutually beneficial relationship.

A panel of New Hampshire media professionals from television, radio and print will give you their tips, outlook and advice. We will also discuss how to break through the clutter, how to make your pitch stand out, the best way to connect with them and more.

This event will be held on Wednesday, April 15, from 4-6 p.m. in the Banquet Hall at Southern New Hampshire University. The cost for members is $20, non-members $35, and students/interns $10.
