What you will learn

3 evenings, $100 (dinners included)

The success of your organization, cause, or candidate depends on how well a message is communicated by the media, so the words you use matter.

Attend the Leadership Institute's Public Relations School and discover how to translate the words you want to use into a media strategy for positive coverage.

You'll learn to:

  • develop the right message for your target audience
  • use social media to spread that message
  • build valuable relationships with the media
