Getting publicity through the media - webinar for Fellows

Getting publicity through the media - webinar for Fellows

All Churchill Fellows are invited to our free webinar on 'Getting publicity through the media', on Thursday 24 January.

This is a special opportunity for all interested Fellows to get detailed advice on how to gain press coverage for your Fellowship. If you want to attract publicity for your findings but lack experience of working with the media, then you may find this webinar particularly useful.

This live online event will feature three Churchill Fellows with experience in media activity, in discussion with our Communications Director:

  • Nicola Sharp-Jeffs, who has gained coverage for her research in The Guardian, and BBC Radio 4's Today programme and Money Box. Her Fellowship was to Australia and the USA to investigate ways of supporting survivors of financial abuse. 
  • Nishtha Chugh, who has gained coverage for her research in The Guardian and BBC Asian Network. Her Fellowship was to India, Pakistan, Qatar and the USA to investigate rates of organ donation in BAME communities. 
  • Erica McInnis, who has gained coverage for her research on BBC Radio 4, The Psychologist and Therapy Today. Her Fellowship was to the USA to research African psychology and its benefits for mental health and wellbeing.
  • Jonathan Lorie, WCMT Communications Director, who is also a working journalist.

After the discussion, you will have a chance to ask the panelists questions.

We are running the webinar at 1pm on 24 January and it will last about 45 minutes. It is open to all Fellows, regardless of where you are in your Fellowship, or how long ago you completed it.

Before joining the webinar, you may find it useful to read our guide to approaching the media.
