This week's chat

March 8, 2013 #CommsChat on media relations with Tom Maddocks

Tom Maddocks (@tommaddocks1) has been a media skills expert and has been training communications professionals in media relations for the past ten years. Working in finance, technology and media, the media coach and journalist has a strong base from which to provide communications strategies and advice.

His new book, The M-factor: Media Confidence for Business Leaders and Managers was launched last week. It covers the mistakes companies make using media, tone of voice, social media and more. He’ll be joining us for #commschat on Monday to discuss leadership, communications strategy and media relations.

Some topics we’ll discuss:

  • What are the seven big mistakes companies make when dealing with the media?
  • What are the business benefits to smart use of the media?
  • How should a business develop key messages?
  • Should media relations strategies change when managing a crisis?
  • What role does social media play when communicating with journalists?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place from 8-9pm UK time – for worldwide times, go here. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will go up on Tuesday morning.

We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics for #CommsChat – get in touch with Brittany by email or Twitter if you’ve got ideas.
