Madeira Public Relations is proud to support the first annual walk for NAMI Pinellas. With an emphasis on serving the health and wellness sector, we consistently see the impact mental health plays in every aspect of care from treatment to prevention.
Madeira will lead a media training workshop at the annual meeting of the National Farm to School Network in Florida next month. Participants can look forward to learning what has replaced the old-fashioned press release and how to dazzle assignment desk editors with story ideas that capture headlines and book television appearances.
Questions to always ask before an interview and how to build the perfect media contact list will also be covered in this interactive and fast-paced workshop. If your organization is looking to brighten its media spotlight, create a marketing plan or develop other critical communications skills, we'd love to work with you to build a customized workshop tailored to your unique needs and objectives.
Did you know our very own Stephanie Dufner was the social media strategist behind the Ice Bucket Challenge?

Inevitably, there is never enough time, even in a jammed packed four hour workshop, to fully delve into this vast and sometimes complex topic. That is why we always like to offer a resource guide where students can continue to explore the subject matter at their own pace.
Even if you are not able to join us next week, we thought it would be helpful to share an abbreviated listing of books Madeira keeps handy on our own office bookshelf. Foremost,The Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law is a book (now also available digitally) we reference on an almost daily basis. Others that we regularly rely upon include:
Cutlip & Center's Effective Public Relations, Glen M. Broom
The Media Training Bible, Brad Phillips
Public Relations Writing: The Essentials of Style and Format, Thomas H. Bivins
The Elements of Style, William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White
