Hai Media Group’s Director Lisa Devaney is now a trainer with Pinnacle PR, the world’s largest specialised international public relations training company, offering introductory and advanced seminars in public affairs, media relations, crisis communications, event organisation and more.
Devaney is offering full and half day seminars for PR 2.0 training, helping participants from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, understand how to approach and use the Web for public relations campaigns. Her course is influenced by the teachings of Brian Solis, Beth Harte and other leading PR 2.0 professionals. The course looks at the pros and cons of online communications and provides strategic insight for “future-proofing” business communications. The course also provides instruction on using online tools, finding resources, as well as basic skills training for using social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin for business.
As millions of people increasingly use the Internet to communicate, businesses are looking to craft appropriate ways of connecting with key stakeholder audiences online, and looking to experienced online communicators to avoid pitfalls. As of summer 2009, more than 250 million people are members of Facebook, and more than 33 million are using Twitter, two of the most popular social networking sites. Devaney shares case studies with course participants, taking a look at some of the blunders, as well as the successes, companies are currently having online.
Pinnacle PR has attractive training facilities in London, Brussels, Dubai and Bahrain, and each location is fully equipped for presentations, and media relations on-camera training. Seminars are kept to a limited size to create an engaged learning environment, with participants asking questions throughout the courses. The seminars include hands-on workshop sessions that put new skills into action, and best prepare participants for real world public relations issues. All of Pinnacle PR’s trainers are senior public relations professionals, who have real world working experience, and continue to work in the industry.
