Description

It’s true!

Just because you think your product/service/idea is fantastic, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s news worthy. However, there are tips and tricks entrepreneurs can use to increase their chances of media coverage.

In an 90 minutes we will cover:

  • The differences between storytelling within marketing and media.
  • How to generate story ideas.
  • Best practices for writing releases and targeting journalists
  • How to build “story elements” for various mediums
  • Real world examples of pitches and the results
  • Q&A

He is board chair for the Ottawa Fringe Festival. He is too sarcastic for his own good.
