How we work with the press / media has evolved so much over the years, like everything in the digital age. Our guest on this episode shares how to stay on track and not blow a media opportunity. Elisa has had such a diverse career, and uses her knack for storytelling as she shares so many great knowledge bombs with us!
Interestingly, the advice she gives for engaging with press has much in common with the advice she gives for having productive conversations with people with whom we may disagree.
You'll be able to put this knowledge to work right away - whether you work with the press / media or not!
