Platform: Microsoft Teams

Following the success of the media workshops in November and January, ADPH and LGA are pleased to offer another session to support members with their increasing public profile. The interactive, two-part session will focus on refining the skills and influencing techniques needed to handle media interviews and communication with the public.  

The workshop will cover: 

  • How journalists think and what makes news 
  • How to influence as well as inform 
  • How great leaders inspire 
  • Preparation for interviews, including strategic messaging, the terms of engagement with interviews, do’s and don’ts and how to maintain control in interviews and exploit difficult situations  

The workshop will take place over the course of two sessions (2 hours each) – in order to gain the maximum benefit, it is important that interested members attend both sessions. 

  • Session 1: Monday 15 March (17:00–19:00) 
  • Session 2: Tuesday 16 March (17:00–19:00) 

Previous attendees have described the workshop as ‘excellent, thought-provoking and incredibly informative’. We are therefore delighted to be able to offer the opportunity and hope that you will be able to attend.
