Maybe you’ve never dealt with a reporter who has an agenda, who may be out to get your company. Dealing with negative publicity can be frustrating and stressful. We can probably all agree that not all PR is created equal and especially in crisis situations, good PR is an invaluable tool.
Join us on Tuesday, August 23rd for a one-hour recorded teleseminar, “How to Keep the Media Wolves at Bay,” featuring publicity expert Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound, as she interviews Jonathan Bernstein, a crisis public relations expert.
You will learn among other things:
- The best way to deal with “media wolves” so they don’t eat you alive
- The top 5 mistakes people make in bad news situations
- What to say when you can’t answer a question so you don’t start babbling
- What to do if you suspect the reporter has an agenda and is out to get you
- How to have your own agenda and make it work for you
Networking begins at 11:30 am, with lunch and the teleseminar to follow promptly at noon.
Cost: $24 for PRSA members, $29 for non-members, $27 for non-profit, and $15 for students.
*No shows will be billed if no prior notice given and only cash and checks accepted at the door
NOTE: To guarantee seating and meal, you must register online by Friday, August 19th.
Consider it a summer hiatus (albeit short).
PRSA Gulf Coast is back this month to host a sizzling Lunch N’ Learn at the Hilton Naples on “How to Keep the Media Wolves at Bay.”
Although we don’t like to think of our fellow media colleagues that way, “media wolves” do exist. Maybe some of you have had the misfortune of dealing with one. What do you do as a PR professional to defend your company’s reputation and negate bad messaging?
If you’ve battled a “media wolf,” or are frightened at the thought, join us on August 23rd and learn what it takes to come out on top. Visit our PRSA Upcoming Lunch ‘n Learn page for more details and to register online!
Also, we’re looking forward to presenting our annual “Meet the Media” panel on October 25th, and already have several representatives confirmed. More information to come. Sign up for our newsletter to stay informed of this and other upcoming seminars!
We hope you’re having a great summer!
President, PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter
