Active Media Relations - Reactive Media Relations (Media contacts you)

  • It’s in the middle of a busy workday at your business, and one of your staff comes to you to explain that a reporter is waiting on the line to talk to the owner or organizational leader.

In Reactive Media Relations, Rob will discuss what to do when the media approaches your business and why you don’t always need to respond to media inquiries.

Active Media Relations - Proactive Media Relations Session (You contact the media)

  • Your business has meaningful and interesting stories to share with the people that matter most to your success. Though like many businesses, your reach to get the word out may be limited.

Ideally, you want to positively leverage the media’s traditional and online channels of communication but you want to avoid any negative missteps that could have the opposite effect. How do you start, where do you finish, and how do you know you have succeeded?

When I work with the marketing departments of various companies, I often hear people talk about communicating their “story”. But while this corporate buzzword gets thrown around a lot, few people truly understand stories and their application to business. Rob Wozny is someone who does.
