FREE MEDIA SKILLS SEMINAR – STRIPE Project
You and members of your group, loyal order or band are invited to attend a Free media skills seminar:
Venue: Belmont Hotel, Banbridge (Cupids and Damask Room)
Date and Time: 14th November 2012, 7.00-9.00 pm
There has been much discussion and publicity recently regarding the media and its relationship with the loyal orders, bands and wider Protestant community. This media seminar will begin to address what skills are needed to engage with the media in order to positively represent yourself, group and community. This is a great opportunity for your group to gain media understanding and skills in order to tackle negative perceptions around your events and activities.
The seminar will provide a first step for people who want to become more media skilled. There will be an opportunity to register for 2 further workshops that will take place on 28th November 2012 and 5th December 2012, 7.00-9.00 pm. Workshops will cover the following:
· presentation skills e.g. power points presentations, seminar presentations
· media skills, including body language and some filming and review of same
· e.g. press releases, how to deliver the right message.
Please contact Richard Forsythe to register for a place(s) at this event on Wednesday 14th November or to receive further information. I would also ask you to circulate this event to people from loyal orders, bands and groups who may be interested.
