Next Tuesday, March 10, Jim O’Reilly from D S Simon will share his knowledge and experience on conducting effective Satellite media tours (SMTs), both broadcasted and online. After a brief introduction for those who haven’t run one before, he’ll demonstrate the importance of structuring a good storyline, using solid talent, and getting additional value by re-using SMT content in the future.
