"Do I have your attention?"

How does one catch and keep people's attention in the digital age? With attention spans slipping and clickbait articles dominating your newsfeed, how do you make sure your message is being seen and heard? How do you connect with your audience - and to the right reporters - who can tell your story? We got expert insight from two journalists who shared their thoughts on adapting to life in the media fast lane, and their dos and don’ts of pitching your startup story to publications. As part of Vancouver Startup Week 2019, Kathleen Reid, Managing Director of Switchboard Public Relations, moderated the panel with speakers Farhan Mohamed (@farhanmohamed), Daily Hive and Hayley Woodin (@hayleywoodin), Business in Vancouver on everything you need to know about media and PR.   Details: Monday September 16, 2019 8:00 a.m.  -  9:30 a.m. Spaces Gastown 151 West Hastings Street, Lower Level
