The Carpathian Foundation organized a training of communication skills and relations with media which took place on Tuesday, 4 May.
14 representatives of non – profit organizations, schools or other public benefit institutions took a part in the training. At the training, the participants learned how to create high – quality media releases and how to build relations with media as forms of building visibility of organizations and projects. The participants got better acquainted with motivation of media to publicize information on non – profit activities, with ways to accomplish the most effective media coverage. They together created a model press release and discussed ways to avoid unwanted questions and false information.
Our trainer was Slavomír Szabó, a journalist, publicist and author with long term and rich experience.
The feedback we received from the training participants served a proof that the training was very useful. The Carpathian Foundation understands the importance of good communication with media for building a good name of non – profits and charitable projects. Therefore, we are glad that we could organize this training for their representatives.
