Feature Speaker: Annette Densham – How to Get Free Publicity
Join our featured speaker- Annette Densham on “How to Get Free Publicity”. Annette will share with us how free publicity from the media is a powerful social proof of how awesome you and your business are - and money cannot buy this third party credibility. Time poor and resource strapped journalists are eager for good quality stories from small businesses. They WANT and NEED your story.
You do not need to engage an agency, go to uni to learn how to be your own PR expert, or be a big business to stand out - you just need to know how to find a good story and who to give that story to.
Annette will cover:
- Why PR is so powerful for small business
- What you are missing out on by not using PR
- How to connect with journalists who want your stories
- What makes news… and much more!
Annette is the Publicity Genie; she was born to be a storyteller. At 15, she got her start at a suburban newspaper and was hooked. Over the past 20 years, she has written for the spectrum of National Press covering hundreds of stories…and knows what makes news.
What she really loves is helping small business owners learn how to tap into the power of PR to raise their profile and make more money. With her diverse background, she knows what makes a good story and how to leverage that for maximum impact.

Pre-Session - Speakers' Tales from the Trenches facilitated by highly engaging Dale Rees-Bevan
Come along and have your say in this months “Free vs Fee Philosophy” discussion. Is there a time when "Free" is OK? - or is "Fee" the only way to uphold the value of the profession? Is there some middle ground? This discussion will be kick-started by a small panel and then we'd love to hear a range of ideas and points of view on the subject.
This is a unique opportunity to hear from members of PSA about challenges they've had to face up to and conquered during their speaking careers.
