1) To kick things off, could you tell us a little about your background and career?
My career has been quite diverse. I did my undergrad degree in biochemistry and cellular biology straight from high school. I then did a teaching degree and worked as a high school teacher for a few years before moving into vocational training.

Media-Wize recently conducted a media training workshop. It was a great session that was well attended by founders, comms professionals and leaders of fast-growth businesses looking for tips on improving their media profile. Here’s a short package of highlights from that session.
Despite the massive amount of content that’s produced and published these days, the number of journalists is dwindling. That means fewer people are doing more work than ever. As a result, the it’s harder to get a journalist’s attention even if you have a great story to tell. Here are some tips to help you stand out in an ever-growing crowd.
On a typical day, journalists receive dozens, if not hundreds, of press releases and story pitches. With publishing timelines contracting and the news cycle moving faster than ever before, journalists are looking for stories that can be turned around quickly and free up their time so they can focus on long-form stories and research. That’s a tough balancing act. And one thing that simply doesn’t help is an embargo.
It was wonderful to attend Launch Festival 2019 and listen to inspiring speakers and meet many founders and startups with great ideas and passion.
