Masters of Scale: Leveraging PR & Press
Thursday 19th October, 6:30pm
Join financial journalist at The Times, James Hurley, who will host a panel discussion covering do’s and don’ts of approaching the press.
You’ll be given food for thought on whether, and when, using a PR agency might be right for you and how media-savvy entrepreneurs can sometimes be the best people to lead their own press operations. The session will include insights from Grace Ekenimoh, director of The Grace Agency, a PR and communications agency that works with companies large and small, start-ups and individuals. You’ll also hear from Pleurat Shabani, a vodka entrepreneur who went from homelessness to running one of the world’s coolest spirit brands––he will talk to us about how he achieved a broad range of media coverage for his company despite never paying a PR agency. During the event there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with like-minded founders and ask any burning questions you have about your media relations.
