We’re PR pirates, sifting through trunks full of case studies in search of a golden nugget to grab the media’s attention. But there’s a lot out there and it can be buried away with other crews.

So, it’s important every crew comes together in sourcing these stories and agree a joint plan of action for when we find them. And unlike pirates, it’s essential that we take good care of the nugget holders (AKA the people we exist to support).

This event will be made up of quick-fire presentations and Q&As to choose from. We’ll be exploring what makes a story newsworthy, how we can work with our colleagues to source these stories, how to sell them into journalists, and what best practice looks like when it comes to safeguarding the people whose stories we’re telling.

Booking for this event will open approx. six weeks before the event date. If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Lauren to be added to the mailing list.

About the PR Network

CharityComms’ PR Network is a group for professionals working in PR and media in UK charities and not-for-profits.

The PR Network gives you the chance to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The network is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.

The group meets three times a year to focus on a common challenge. The format of the meetings is one or two presentations on a specific topic, followed by small group discussions, providing a combination of best practice and peer-to-peer sharing.
