A Beginners Guide to PR
A free workshop in partnership with Roundhouse Digital
Do you see PR as a dark art or something to avoid Maybe you would love to try it but you’re not sure where to begin, or whether you have the budget?
Getting started with PR can seem scary, but at its heart is good storytelling. While traditional media may be in decline as an industry, the rise of digital has made effective PR more important than ever.
Elliot McGrath is a content strategist at the full-service agency The Roundhouse. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and experienced in the effective communication of stories to a diverse range of audiences.
In this interactive workshop he will challenge the preconceptions that surround PR; from identifying stories that are relevant to both your business and journalists, to pitching the stories in a way that will maximise your chances of success.
Elliot will show that PR doesn’t have to be a mystery and is not just effective with big budgets and complex software. He will also explain how to fit PR into your existing content process, so that no time is ever wasted on producing stories.
8.30 - 11.00 from the Neon Building.
Includes a free breakfast

Viewpoint: a Photography Exhibition
A free event from the Q4 Building 10.00-3.00
Composition is an integral facet of good photography and knowing how to best present the image that you see to your audience is one of the key factors in whether or not your photograph will be a success. The viewpoint from which you shoot your image can make a vast difference to how your subject is perceived. As photographer Ansel Adams once said: “A good photograph is knowing where to stand”.
The angle, direction or stance from which you shoot can significantly alter the mood and feel of the photograph. Even subtle changes in viewpoint can completely change the relationship between the objects in the photo and help to show things from a different, more unique perspective.
A centre shot taken from a standing position gives a completely different perspective to gaining height on your subject, crouching down low or even lying down. Changing your position can greatly alter the implied power dynamics of a shot. By altering the distance from your subject you can also change the intensity. By getting in close you can reveal more telling details and create a greater sense of intimacy with the subject. As war photographer Robert Capa once said: “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough”.
The images featured in this exhibition have all sought to experiment with the viewpoint in order to present us with new and unexpected perspectives. Many have opened our eyes and forced us to re-evaluate our perceptions of the scenes that they have presented. Some have even selected a viewpoint that has forced us to reconsider our own point of view and our way of seeing.
