Event description

Description

For Aston University staff only

You may already have some experience of communicating with journalists and want to increase your media presence, or you may have no experience and are looking for an introduction.

A key tool in promoting our research is The Conversation - an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public and regularly republished by the UK and the world’s leading media organisations. The press and PR team is encouraging all academics to consider how they can contribute to The Conversation – and this session includes an introduction to how it works, what the benefits are, and what support is available.
