Event description

Description

Are you an academic worried about the pitfalls of working with the media?

Are you worried that journalists will distort your work or dumb it down?

Do you want to get your work out there, but find yourself unsure who to pitch to and how?

The good news is that people do want to listen to experts and while things can go wrong and the media can be hard to deal with, there are ways to cut through the noise without diluting your message or wasting your time.

Our panel can help you!

Andrew Naughtie is International Editor at The Conversation, and is used to working with academics to get their work out to a general audience. He will explain some of the risks and rewards of using the media to reach people beyond the halls of academics.
