 How will I benefit from this course?

Working with the media during an emergency response takes careful planning and execution. When it is done correctly it can result in strong coverage for your organisation, a chance to influence current and future supporters and donors, highlight concerns for children and raise your organisation’s profile. It is therefore one of the essential skills needed by emergency communicators.
