Upcoming Webinar to Focus on PR Needs of Nonprofits and Social Enterprises
Vanessa Wakeman to present How to Make Your Organization a Media Darling As Part of the Popular Ventureneer Webinar Series
New York, NY (November 2, 2011) – Nonprofits and social enterprises struggling to get their voices heard would be well served to attend the upcoming webinar How to Make Your Organization a Media Darling presented by Vanessa Wakeman of The Wakeman Agency. The session is part of the Venturneer Webinar series for nonprofits and social enterprises.
The webinar will be held on Monday, November 14th at 12:00pm EST. Participants will learn how to create attention grabbing PR pitches, sound bytes that get printed and other insider secrets to help them understand what the media needs.
“We have the good fortune of working with nonprofits and social enterprises often. Many times they have a good story to tell but haven’t figured out how to connect with the appropriate journalists or what to say to capture their attention. Becoming a media darling is all about shaping information in a manner that gets the attention of the media so they share it with their audience. Once people understand how to fine tune all of the facts and stats that they have at their disposal they can become a resource for the media and find themselves on speed dial,” stated Vanessa Wakeman, founder of The Wakeman Agency.
The Wakeman Agency provides event management and public relations services to nonprofits and progressive organizations. In addition to providing resources like the webinar, the firm also offers a myriad of public relations packages, such as INCubator, to organizations with budget limitations.
“Values-driven businesses need to get their messages out on a dime. When the media comes to you, it doesn’t cost nearly as much as an ad campaign,” said Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.
