SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE

This one-day interactive workshop gives small organizations the opportunity to learn tips and tricks for crafting and selling their message to the public.

The workshop sessions have been individually designed to assure a full spectrum of basic PR practices to fluently use social mediums for successful communication.
