On Thursday, Bayview PR principals Kyle Parks and Missy Hurley will help Tampa Bay business professionals understand how media coverage can enhance an organization’s reputation and credibility, and share tips for getting the media’s attention. The presentation on November 18 is part of IKEA Tampa’s Live @ FIVE series, which are programs for busy business owners and professionals to learn key skills for personal and professional development.
During “Getting published: Working with the media,” Kyle and Missy will share how coverage in newspapers, magazines, online news sites, television, radio, and blogs can help an organization. They’ll discuss criteria to determine if a topic or event is newsworthy and how to target the right news organization and person within it to gain attention.
Kyle and Missy will tell their three rules for media interviews and give business owners and professionals tips and techniques for successful media interviews. They’ll teach attendees how to develop succinct and powerful messages to describe their organization and how it helps their customers.
Live @ FIVE is held on the third Thursday of each month, starting with informal networking at 5 p.m. and followed by a one-hour workshop from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Live @ FIVE programs are held in IKEA Tampa’s Community Room located on the store’s second level.
If you’d like to attend, advance registrations are requested as space is limited. Please register through IKEA Tampa’s website by Tuesday, November 16 and include the full name, name of company & email of each attendee.
