A recent testimonial
'Serena delivered a bespoke workshop about how to get press in the digital age to ten heritage sites from across West London. Attendees varied from larger institutions with dedicated marketing staff to smaller, volunteer led sites. Serena pitched the session so that the basics were covered for beginners whilst ensuring that more advanced participants were stretched. Everyone left feeling a lot more confident about how they can use their sites and collections to get good press. Filled with top tips, case studies and fun exercises Serena ensured that attendees were engaged through out. Thank you Serena, we will be sure to send you our press clippings!' Natalie Rhodes, Heritage Hub Education Coordinator, Orleans House Gallery, London.

A bit more about us
Our PR workshops are led by Serena Fokschaner, an experienced freelance journalist who writes for national titles ranging from The Observer to The Sunday Times and the Telegraph. Her copy writing clients include Dulux and the British Embassy in Tokyo.
Serena has interviewed and written about numerous professionals: from architects and interior designers to craftsmen, retailers large and small, restaurateurs and hoteliers.
This experience means that she understands at first-hand the challenges of getting your story heard in a noisy, digital world.
Educated at Oxford (BA, Eng Lit, Exhibitioner) and more recently at Birkbeck (Graduate Certificate History of Art) universities, Serena was inspired to create this session by a workshop she has devised for The Prince’s Trust where she runs specialist workshops.
