How would you respond if you took a reporter’s phone call out of the blue? A new VMA workshop aims to help practice staff deal with media enquiries and crisis management.
The Veterinary Marketing Association (VMA) is hosting a workshop to help practice staff deal with media enquiries and crisis management.
Event sponsor Jane Manning asked: “How would you respond if you took a reporter’s phone call out of the blue? Are you confident in handling the media, either during a crisis or as part of your day-to-day activities? These are some of the questions that will be posed during the event.”
The one-day workshop is aimed at anyone within an organisation who might have contact with the media, and will deal with the most likely scenarios, including day-to-day press contact, handling impromptu journalist requests and keeping your head in a crisis.
Presenters will include former Farmers Weekly editor Charles Abel and TV and radio presenter David Addis.
“All delegates will have face-to-face and phone interviews to see just how probing journalists can be,” Ms Manning added.
The workshop is being held on September 25, 2013 in Milton Keynes and costs £175+VAT for VMA members and £225+VAT for non-members.
