Media Training: How to use the media to your business advantage
Do you ever wonder why some businesses get interviewed on local TV stations when you’re an expert in the same field? Or, you may tremble at the thought of a reporter calling, even if the call could help your local business.
Natalie Walston, a veteran of newspaper, radio and television news in Central Ohio owns a company that helps clients not only get media coverage, but become aces at being interviewed. Natalie is CEO of The Walston Group, LLC, a public relations, crisis communications and publicity firm that boasts clients such as nationally-known comedian Drew Hastings.
Join Natalie and FOX 28′s Good Day Columbus reporter Johnny DiLoretto for a brown bag lunch that will teach you how to do a great interview, what to expect from reporters and how to promote your expertise and your business knowledge to help you get the news coverage that brings in clients.
This event is open to the public. Lunch will be provided for the lunch and learn to be held on Thursday, March 22 at Indiana Wesleyan University, 3455 Mill Run Drive, Suite 200 in Hilliard from 11:15 am-1:00 pm.
