Masterclass – Media – PR and Crisis Comms for School Leaders

The session will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn from a former journalist and Government media adviser the essential practical information they need to promote their school and handle the kinds of crises that affect those in the education sector. Ollie will explain how to tell your story, and how journalists open up news angles and the narratives they want to tell. It will be an interactive session that will provide advice on the importance of story-telling, will set out the golden rules of handling tough media interviews, and how to stick to your key messages.

This masterclass is organised by CST Professional Development Ltd on behalf of the Confederation of School Trusts (CST).
