The Women’s Organisation Business Club Met The Media At Last Week’s Event!

Wow! we are only just recovering from last Thursday’s fantastic Business Club event, Meet the Media. We had over 50 business women join us at 54 St James Street for this annual event. The evening was sponsored generously by Skyline (IT Answers) who spoke about their cloud based software and also raffled off a Kindle to a lucky guest!

On the night we had our expert media panel from radio, television, newspaper and PR join us and our guests were prepared to give them a grilling on how to get their businesses noticed by the media. On our panel was Tony McDonough from Liverpool Echo, Jennie Lewis from YB News & PR,Jimmy McCracken from BBC Radio Merseyside and Louise Martin a Political Journalist who is currently working with The One Show.

With such a fantastic panel, it was great our Business Club members and other guests take this great opportunity to ask them questions and we heard from so many different businesses. Our panel were invited to speak for a few minutes at the start of the evening about their tips for how to get their businesses noticed by the media and what kind of stories would make them take notice!

From tips such as making sure to put your press release in the body of the email, to knowing the name of the person you want to speak to you before you ring a Press Office, there were so many insider hints and secrets that our guests got to take away with them and will use in the future to help their businesses meet the media. And the feedback that we got from the event showed just how much it was enjoyed;

‘Fab! Such a great insight, given me a new perspective. Thank you’

‘Very informative! A great panel and some actionable advice’

‘Brilliant tips and hints for direct contact with the media’

‘Welcoming and informative’

‘I loved hearing all the stories. It was like being in my own personal newspaper. Really good event’

We’d like to thank everyone who came down to the event, and we know that so many of the business woman present got lots out of the evening as they stood up and introduced their business to the panel. Great connections were made and we are sure that the national news is going to be filled with stories that the panel got to hear on the night!

Be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook page as we will be posting the fantastic photos from the evening as we were also joined by photographer Paul Waring from Humble Pie Creative who documented the evening, making it feel very media-esque indeed!

Once again, thank you to the event sponsors Skyline for the great support of the evening, and also thank you to Business Club’s headline sponsors Mitchell Charlesworth. We’d like to thank our fantastic panel who we couldn’t have done without, our event photographers and everyone who joined us for 2016’s Meet the Media!

  1. I know my story is the story of many people who have experienced the loss of a relative's hearing aid. My story Hear Ear has prompted my business opportunity which I wish to promote throughout the UK and beyond. Meeting the Media gave me the opportunity to TELL my story which was well received by the panel and I am looking forward to the openings which may be available to me. Thanks Barbara
