Past Publicity Training Testimonials

The workshop was everything I’d hoped for and more. I arrived with zero public relations experience and left feeling fully equipped to create media-friendly stories that showcase my expertise and speak to my target audience. In fact, the very first story I pitched to a journalist was published. I believe this workshop will turn out be one of the best investments I’ve ever made in my business. Anthony Berrick.

The workshop was a great learning opportunity from a recognised expert in the field. Catriona shared an incredible amount of information and uncovered many crucial tips and tools to get media coverage. What I found most valuable was how she invested a lot of time delving into each participant’s case and made sure we had a clear idea and plan to act on. I left the workshop feeling truly inspired and capable to tackle PR for my business. Ivanka Ruvarac
