Good communication is the gateway to learning, friendships, academic achievement and success at work

Bring the Noise - Media Toolkit

Working with your local media can be an effective and influential way of getting your messages out about your work to your local community and beyond. Journalists get sent a great deal of information so it's really important that your story stands out from the crowd.

Bring the Noise has been developed to help you do this. It covers the following areas:

- How to 'reel' in your local media
- How to contact them
- How to handle media interest
- How to create a good photo opportunity
- How to get the best from a TV or radio interview
