Registration Closed / Past Event


There is so much background noise in this world - which is dominated by the 24-hour news cycle – that it is sometimes hard to be heard. This session will look at taking part in the ubiquitous public conversation and working with the media – print, electronic and social - in order to establish a public presence and get your message across effectively. We’ll look at feedback – both positive and negative - and how to handle it, and that fine line between establishing yourself as an independent public figure and being seen as part of a bigger institution with guidelines and rules on corporate communication and branding. 

This session is one of four being offered by Simon Clews, Director of the Melbourne Engagement Lab at Melbourne University. To register for other sessions in this series, please see:
