LUNCH TALK: STARTUP PR 101

Bill Gates said he'd spend his last dollar on PR, and Richard Branson calls it absolutely critical. But what is PR, and how can you use it to make big waves in the press even though you're on a tiny budget?

What you will learn: 

In this talk you’ll learn the basics of startup PR, what it can do for your business, and, crucially, how to secure your first piece of coverage. We will cover when to pitch what, how to build your first media database, how to go about developing your first media pitch - and, last but not least, how to avoid pissing off those journos.
