In an increasingly connected world, news stories can fly from one corner of the globe to the next imminently. But how do press officers make that happen?
What stories work outside the UK? How can UK organisations get themselves on the global agenda? And what considerations are there for working with journalists on the other side of the world?
Join us to hear from three experts with a variety of experience in international media:
  • Greg Jones, Media Manager at The British Heart Foundation
  • Morwenna Darby, Media & Communications Manager at UNICEF
  • And more!
Chair: Emily Head, Media Relations Manager, The Lancet
