    This hands-on workshop is designed to refresh and strengthen media relations skills to effectively manage difficult or crisis interviews. Members will learn interview preparation tips, effective message development and delivery and will practice what they’ve learned through skill-building exercises. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be better prepared to handle difficult questions, staying on message and maintaining control of the interview.

    Join us for a festive cocktail hour at CURE Coffeehouse and Brasserie immediately following the workshop. Mix and mingle with your favorite Hampton Roads PR professionals while sipping wine, beer and cocktails (or coffee!) and enjoying a delicious charcuterie spread.

    Registration includes workshop (with snacks) plus two beverages and charcuterie at CURE.
