This is part of our "Communicating Impact" programme, developed in partnership with Bespoke Communications. This interactive one day session will help you communicate your impact through TV and radio interviews.

We have developed this Communicating Impact series in partnership with Bespoke Communications, who have been delivering a variety of media programmes with NICVA for our sector over the last number of years.

If you would like to get the mainstream media interested in your story this is the training course for you.

Attend this one-day interactive workshop with journalist Sarah Travers of Bespoke Communications to learn how to make your story newsworthy.  In this course, you’ll also learn how to plan your key message for a media interview and you’ll experience a live TV interview in a safe environment, under the guidance of an experienced broadcasting mentor.
