Rooster Talks: PR for Profile, Engagement & Revenue with Paul MacKenzie-Cummins

Friday 1st March 2019
8am to 9am

Admission is FREE
Book via Eventbrite

PR is all about press releases and getting journalists sozzled, right?

Roll back the clock to 10 years ago, and it is safe to say that the preferred media of choice for people was either the TV and/or newspapers. Fast-forward to today, and such formats have become largely redundant thanks to rapid advances in technology.

Your customers have more choice than ever before over how they want to find and receive information. Their decisions are increasingly influenced by what they see and hear in the media, and what others share with them. So, how can businesses get a better understanding of the best way to invest their PR resources and ensure the maximum return on that investment?

Paul MacKenzie-Cummins will lift the lid on how businesses can raise their profile, engage with their audiences, and ultimately drive revenues, without it costing the earth to do so. He will share real-life examples of how businesses of all sizes and sectors have successfully navigated their way around the digital landscape, and the impact this has had on their bottom line profits.

PR is only expensive if it isn’t done right. This session is an insight into how to get the most from your PR efforts. It will provide a number of key takeaways that can be instantly applied to your business.

Traditional media still has a place on modern outreach programmes, but the exponential growth in new media channels does present an even greater number of opportunities for businesses to differentiate themselves.

Paul MacKenzie-Cummins started his media career in the mid-1990s and spent a number of years working for some of the biggest publishers in the UK, including Mirror Group Newspapers.

Following 11 years in advertising sales, he transitioned into PR in 2005 and in 2014 he founded Clearly PR. The company has since grown to a team of 10 people based formerly in Glove Factory Studios and now in Bradford on Avon.

Free admission with coffee and croissants from The Field Kitchen

Friday 7th December
8am to 9am

Admission is FREE
RSVP: Eventbrite

The inimitable Simon Tyler is back for December’s Rooster Talks to talk attitude – your flipping attitude!

His latest title, The Attitude Book, launched at Glove Factory in September. And for the time being, it would seem that’s all he talks about.

Your way of thinking at any given moment pre-determines how you experience everything that’s going on. And your attitude range is the comfort zone through which you travel from your best days through to your most challenging.

During this session, Simon will work with you on this range – you at your best and you at your worst. You’ll discover how to unpick the layers that comprise your unique viewpoint. Simon will show you new ways to develop your individual capability and achieve incredible things with just the power of attitude.

Simon Tyler is an inspiring and entertaining speaker and coach. He works with individuals, teams and companies to positively change and boost attitudes, and enhance the impact they have. His entertaining, pragmatic and stimulating words, rooted in simplicity, and his ability to connect with everyone he meets, means he is trusted by many organisations to influence positive change.

Rooster Talks: Why it Pays to Put Workplace Wellbeing on the Agenda – with Joanna Watchman

Friday 2nd November
8am to 9am

Admission is FREE
RSVP: Eventbrite

Did you know we spend 90% of our time indoors? Shocking isn’t it? Especially when you consider how much of that time is spent at work.

You might also be surprised to learn that one in six workers believe their workplace has a negative impact on their health and wellbeing. It’s time for employers to sharpen their act. And, it’s time for employees to demand more.

Joanna Watchman, Founder of Work in Mind, believes that the environment in which you work, exist and learn should be a space in which health, wellbeing and productivity can co-exist with sustainability and efficiency. She will shine a light on the global trend towards workplace wellbeing and explain why we can’t afford to ignore it.

This session will be invaluable whether you’re a business owner, manager, employee or influencer. Joanna will share the latest industry research, facts and stats – all of which will be accompanied by fascinating examples of best practice and stories from some of Britain’s biggest real-estate and architecture firms.

Book your place for November’s Rooster Talk. Free admission with coffee and croissants from The Field Kitchen.
