21st Century Media Management
Newspapers are no longer common enough to be used as wrapping in fish and chip shops and many people around the globe are increasing their devotion to the online world at the expense of radio and TV.
Public relations strategy is still a powerful business engagement tool – but traditional strategies need to be paired with social media plans, digital campaigns and training for frontline staff. Twig Marketing takes a strategic, pragmatic approach to public relations that is unusually effective because of our combination of marketing strategy and finely-honed story-spotting skills. Don’t pay for overheads and brainstorming – senior media relations professionals should be skilled enough to identify, write and deliver a media release into the arms of a waiting journalist and Twitter audience before lunch most days without raising a sweat.
Tim has developed a media and presentation training program, and has trained more than 600 people over the past 10 years, in skills ranging from interview technique to audience engagement, message delivery and crisis management.
Organisations must always tell the truth in their dealings with the media – but which facts are reported and the context they are couched in can make an enormous impact on brand and reputation.
Tim has years of experience in reputation management and strategic preparation for crisis management.
