The goal of Meet the Media is to enable communications professionals to hear from leading media organisations on how their respective companies work, providing insight into their specialist areas, giving advice on achieving coverage and informing them on effective targeting of journalists within their sector and how to build a mutually beneficial relationship.
I think events like this are hugely important especially for the more junior members of PR teams because there is so much to learn every brand is different every brand has their dos and don’ts and works in different ways.

I think being able to talk to a big audience in a very sort of targeted way is hugely useful actually. I think from our point of view it’s helpful because we can hopefully help them to be more targeted about their approach.
Justine Southall, Marie Claire
I think especially for PR brands, you know it’s a very scary and daunting process contacting such a big publication, but it’s great to know that they’re very personable and they are open to receiving new offers but it’s about how the best way is to go about it.

When you need to reach out to people on a global scale on a true global scale there aren’t many people that can match PR Newswire in what they’re trying to do.
Duncan Gunstone, ITN
It’s very interesting to learn how PR works, how they work, they even mention dos and don’ts, so for people who are trying to contacting them, how they should approach them.
