More than 1500 PR professionals and communicators have already signed up for the Mynewsdesk journalist webinar on May 25th. The panel will include journalists Maddy Savage, Oliver Gee, and Edgar Mannheimer - and be led by Mynewsdesk CMO Jonathan Bean.

The panel will discuss the most crucial points affecting every brand communicator working with media outreach. How can journalists and brands work better together? There will be an entertaining session with lots of different, maybe even conflicting, points of views. The webinar will take place on May 25th, at 11:30-12:00 CEST.

Questions for the panel to tackle:

  • What frustrates you about the way PRs pitch stories?
  • Are any brands publishing high editorial-quality content?
  • Are journalists open to the idea of working with brands?
  • What’s your outlook on journalism and the media landscape?
