This event will take place in the Sorby Suite – Novotel, Sheffield

This one day workshop run by two ex-BBC journalists is intended for researchers and academics who want to get their research into the general media, or explain their work to non-academic audiences in a variety of contexts.

Learn what the media wants, how to identify and present “media-friendly” elements in your research, how to formulate key messages and deal with difficult questions in interviews. Interactive throughout, culminating in an on-camera interview.

Learn how to…

  • Be able to communicate research to non-specialist audiences.
  • Be able to turn your research into a media story and “pitch” it to the media.
  • Be able to deliver your own agenda in an interview.
  • Master techniques for taking control of the interview and for answering difficult or hostile questions.
  • Gain confidence in giving interviews to print/online media, radio and TV.
