Book your place (20 places)Media Training: Becoming a Spokesperson15 April, 10.30am - 1pmAre you interested in becoming a spokesperson on broadcast media? Interested in how to prepare yourself to ace a media interview? For many of us working in social change there is a constant battle to get good media coverage for our organisations. Often we work alone or in small teams – and there’s no training out there specifically aimed at helping progressives improve their impact. Book your place (20 places)Social Brands in a Fractured Age11 April, 10.30am - 1pmDoes your organisation have a brand identity? The answer is yes. The only question is whether you are consciously managing the ways in which you are perceived, or just allowing people to make assumptions about your organisation based on your unintentional use of language and visual representation.
