- Type HQN Event (Virtual)
- Venue Virtual workshop
- Start 23 Feb 2021 10:00

Is the media still relevant and how do landlords harness its power to tell their stories?
In this session we’ll look at how the media landscape is changing on a local and national level and what that means for communications professionals.
We’ll explore the type of stories that journalists are keen to cover and how the press is maintaining its influence in the age of social media and dwindling readership.

About Comms Fest 2021
Communications has never been so necessary!
Everyone has an opinion on how messages should – or shouldn’t – be put across.
But those of us who have steered our organisations to speak with clarity, empathy and timeliness throughout the Covid-19 pandemic will have enhanced the reputation of our brands and built a new, deeper relationship with our audiences.
It’s been a tough year and we know you’re probably feeling exhausted.
Comms Fest 2021 is a chance for you to get off the treadmill for a few hours each week and recharge your batteries.
Throughout the month we’ll be hosting sessions that give you a chance to reflect, to learn and to refresh including:
- A series of masterclasses to explore the latest best practice in key areas of comms
- Presentations, panel debates and expert analysis on the future of our industry from those inside and outside of the sector
- A chance for people from different organisations to meet up and share their comms challenges over a brew and a cake.
So come and join us, connect with friends, and get set for the year ahead. You’ve earned it!
