Training consultants also discuss how PR strategies need to relate to the modern international media landscape characterised by the internet, mobile technology, and social media. In order for stories to have an impact on the news, it is necessary to understand the basis of what makes a good story and how to write for media, as well as assessing target markets effectively so that messages are delivered to the right audience. These areas are also covered in the first week. Increasingly, Public Relations departments are undertaking the duties of protocol and travel management as part of corporate PR strategy. The lessons in week two of this course therefore examine how to develop successful strategic planning for overseas travel, from obtaining visas and organising accommodation to meeting and receiving international VIPs. The schedule analyses how Protocol and Travel responsibilities should be integrated into an overall PR programme as well as techniques for the successful planning of exhibitions, conferences, visits and events. Discussions also cover effective planning of domestic travel arrangements.
