Wiltshire journalist and media consultant to hold first PR workshop

By Anita Jaynes on 28 August, 2015

Journalist and media consultant Fiona Scott is inviting owners of start-ups and sole traders to her first all-day PR workshop of 2015 to help them tell stories and share information about their business.

Fiona, who has managed her own media consultancy from Wiltshire for the last seven years, is running the PR workshop at The Pear Tree hotel in Purton on Thursday October 1 between 9.30am and 5pm.

She said: “Letting people know about your business is key to success. No matter how good your product or service is – if no one knows about it, you simply don’t have a viable business. Telling stories about it – and the people who work with you is a powerful way of sharing stories and helping people engage with you and what you do. This workshop is designed to give you the tools to do that effectively.”

Fiona has been a journalist in the south west for almost 30 years, working for the Swindon Advertiser, Hospital Radio Swindon, ITV and the BBC. As well as running her own business today, she’s a regular director on the BBC day-time show Flog It! and a guest producer for ITV Wales. She’s also writes for Wiltshire Life magazine and The Business Exchange Swindon and Wiltshire and has also been a columnist in the Gazette & Herald.

The workshop costs £150 and includes the day’s refreshments and lunch. There are a small number of early bird tickets left until Monday August 31. For details visit http://bit.ly/1NEmxNj – please be aware VAT will be charged on tickets from Tuesday September 1 as well as a booking fee.
