    Storytelling is a skill that many in PR and marketing claim to possess, and it lies at the heart of communicating with audiences. At the August 4 Networx, we explore the evolving media landscape and the ways that changes in the media have impacted brands and the way that they communicate their stories.

    From the increased focus on digital platforms, to brand as media publisher, through to the opportunities for brands to partner with media outlets on content, we’ll discuss engaging with audiences through storytelling in all of its forms.     Gain tips on pitching stories to journalists, learn more about the benefits of content marketing through owned media and achieve a better understanding of the ROI that can be achieved for clients through branded content.   Speakers include Emily Kerr, Digital Managing Editor across the Young Women’s titles at Bauer: Cosmopolitan, Cleo, Dolly, Shop Til you Drop, Ian McClelland, Managing Director of Guardian Australia and Amy Wagner, Public Relations Manager of Blackmores.
