Taster session will look at working with the media
The session, ‘In the Spotlight: a practical taster session on working with the media’, will be delivered by Dan Campsall, communications director with Road Safety Analysis.
At a time when budgets are extremely tight, road safety teams are under increasing pressure to utilise the news media, rather than paid for channels, to draw attention to their activities. Yet some road safety officers have had little or no experience or training in this area.
This taster session is designed to help delegates build an understanding of the news media context and provide some tips to help get important road safety stories into the media.
Dan Campsell is an experienced road safety marketing and communications professional who has carried out broadcast work on every major news channel in the UK, as well as international media work.
He has worked on numerous award winning road safety initiatives and currently oversees the Safer Roads campaign, PR and marketing initiatives which span car seat safety, child pedestrian training, young drivers and motorcyclists.
