Event description:

How many times have you had to “cold call” journalists for a pitch and were given the cold shoulder? What could have been improved? The Lunch and Learn, sponsored by FleishmanHillard, will focus on the fundamentals of pitching a product, an idea, or a press release. In this session, targeted at young professionals required to effectively promote their companies’ or clients’ initiatives, Viktoria Dendrinou from the Wall Street Journal will explain what to do (and not to do) when engaging with Brussels media.


BNG events are exclusively open to young professionals under the age of 35.
