Posted: 17th December 2014

Event: Bauer Academy Executive Media Retreat

Location: Archerfield, East Lothian

Date: 11th – 12th March 2015

Cost: Edinburgh Chamber members 20% discount (£1,500)

Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with Bauer Academy to offer an exceptional corporate event for all members on 11th – 12th March 2015.

This two day executive event will cover a range of topics but will fundamentally explain how businesses increasingly need to function more like the media.  Presented by experts from Sky, Bauer Media, BBC, ITV, Independent and Herald, this course offers practical exercises that develop key media and communication skills, build confidence to work closer with the media, and how to use these skills and transfer them into everyday business life.

With the landscape of media changing daily, this unique 2 day course looks at how to adapt to these changes – Bauer Academy will provide practical examples and case studies to illustrate how best to communicate key business messages in an ever evolving media world. The course will demonstrate that knowledge and understanding of the media is crucial for everyone – it can no longer be reserved for those purely working in the industry.

This course is suitable for all media facing personnel, senior executives; public and political figures and internal media teams but equally the skills learnt are key transferable communication skills suitable for all walks of life.

The location of Archerfield has been chosen as it boasts many inspirational locations on the estate, none other than the Marine Villa, where story has it that Robert Louis Stevenson was inspired to write Treasure Island whilst staying there.

The two day event includes accommodation on 11th March, all meals, drinks, snacks and conference literature for the full 2 days. Chamber members can benefit from 20% discount with a special price of £1,500.
