About the Event:

In the new online media landscape, both journalists and PR practitioners are working harder to compete for audience attention. The pressure is on to create a high volume of quality content that gets shared on social platforms.

On November 3, join CNW for the next installment of the award-winning Breakfast with the Media series. Our panel of speakers, drawn from within Canada’s online business media, will share insight into how they work, the pressure for hits and how PR people can adjust their strategies to work better together.

Designed for the savvy professional looking to take their tactics to the next level, PR pros will leave this lively and informative discussion with a better understanding of how to best work with online and digital journalists.

Please note: this is a free event.
