Media Relations & Publicity

Effectively telling your organisation’s story through the news media is one of the most trusted, cost efficient and effective methods for achieving brand recognition and audience influence.

Media coverage shapes opinions, forecasts trends, raises issues, attracts consumers and advocates.

News coverage also creates powerful thought leaders whose profile and influence helps organisations promote their value, communicate a policy position, and develop new commercial markets. Publicity can also generate valuable audiences for events and advocacy campaigns.

However, news media coverage must be earned, with well-crafted messages, insightful data and clear commentary.
