WTF is PR?!
PR can be a great tool for SMEs. A positive piece of media coverage, or a story shared through social media channels, can be a cost effective and relatively quick way to promote your business to your target audience. Today there are a vast array of channels for SMEs to explore which is why preparation and planning are important.
At this Maidenhead Business Girls meet-up we’ll introduce you to:-
- WTF is PR and how can I use it to my advantage
- Understand the playing field – a portrait of the modern media landscape and where PR fits in
- Getting started and where to find help.

Elevator Pitch Taster
The number two fear in the UK is public speaking. As many of 75% of us suffer from it. Combine this with the challenge of an elevator pitch and what to say in it, and it’s no wonder we end up with sweaty palms. In fifteen minutes, Karen Jay Hewitt gives an insightful interpretation of your average audience, and how to structure your elevator pitch to engage every person in the room, even those who weren’t originally interested in what you were selling.
Karen Jay Hewitt runs an empowerment business, specialising in personal influence, confidence and public speaking.
