Stepping Out and Becoming an ‘Expert’

Being heard, exerting influence and making the world a better place for all of us

There is so much background noise in this world - which is dominated by the 24-hour news cycle – that it is sometimes hard to be heard. This session will look at taking part in the ubiquitous public conversation and working with the media – print, electronic and social - in order to establish a public presence and get your message across effectively. We’ll look at feedback – both positive and negative - and how to handle it, and that fine line between establishing yourself as an independent public figure and being seen as part of a bigger institution with guidelines and rules on corporate communication and branding.
