Our networking meetings for 2019 will start on 27th February at The Manchester College’s Wythenshawe Campus, (https://www.tmc.ac.uk/locations/wythenshawe-campus) where the programme will include Tristan Morris of Big Brand Ideas on the innovative recruitment campaign which won an FE First Award last November for The Trafford College Group and Rachel Till, MCIPR, on media relations & issues management. There’ll also be time to discuss your own priorities and concerns in a round-table session.
Rachel has managed PR and comms for several colleges and private sector businesses, including crisis management. In this session, she’ll share tips on how to anticipate, investigate and respond to difficult media enquiries – with a particular focus on using your right of reply to best effect.
There is a small charge (£35 pp for CMN members; £95 pp CMN non-member colleges) and you can pay either with PO/invoice by completing a booking form quoting a PO number and sending it to email@example.com, or by credit card via the Eventbrite links below (site fees apply). If you book via Eventbrite, please also complete a booking form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meetings start at 10.30, with refreshments available from 10.15am, a buffet lunch is provided at 12.30 and meetings end at 2pm. We aim to keep these events informal and friendly, and to provide time for discussion of your own topics, in addition to hearing from speakers.
If you’ve been to one of our networking meetings before, you’ll know that they are invaluable for meeting colleagues, exchanging ideas and experiences, and making contacts – as well as hearing from fellow marketers and external speakers on a wide range of topics. Lunch and refreshments are included – and you have the chance to see another college!
