Chester Women’s Network, June 2014
Our Director was invited to speak at the Chester Women’s Network organised by Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, Chester, in partnership with Natwest Bank. Tricia united with Journalist and PR Consultant Mary Murtagh to provide business and media advice.
Former Liverpool Echo journalist, Mary Murtagh, addressed an audience of 30 Chester businesses, giving valuable insight on writing the perfect press release to effectively capture free advertising space for your company. Delegates took away Mary’s Top Ten Tips for Press Releases primed to put fingers to keyboard and grab journalists’ attention for their captivating news story, rather than it ending up on the cutting room floor.
Tricia contributed to the “Inspirational Moments” slot sharing her own experience of breaking away from full time employment to set up her own business, Tomorrow The World, specialising in exhibitions and events.
NatWest’s Relationship Manager Johanna Holehouse commented: “Mary and Tricia both hosted a really engaging and inter-active presentation, helping to consolidate what the Chester Women’s Network was set up to achieve in the first place – to provide useful nuggets of advice that people can walk away with at the end of the session and think are worthwhile to their business.”
