Making news the changing dynamic of media relations

Meet the Media event was held on Tuesday 26 February 2013

In a tight and competitive media environment, it is important to keep media relations strong. This event dealt with some of the changes that are happening at some of the biggest media outlets and how the art of media relations is changing.
