Hello and welcome to the Rough House blog. This blog is designed for the media savvy – and for those who want to become media savvy. We’ll be bringing you regular tips and advice on how to make the media work in your favour, plus our media-take on what’s going on in the world at the moment.
First, just a little bit about us. We’re media specialists and we offer a range of services – consultancy, training and production – that are all designed to equip our clients to manage the media.
With experience across TV, radio, online and print, every one of the Rough House team has a huge amount of experience at the top of the media tree. Between us we’ve worked on everything from the war in Afghanistan to the Olympics, from Trooping the Colour to the Daily Mirror, from House Beautiful magazine to Guardian Podcasts.
So we are pretty well qualified to cope with anything you’d care to throw at us.
Our aim is to cover every media-related topic that you might be interested in – be it how to cope with the media crisis, how to take control of a TV interview, how to spot a good story or how to manage a press conference. And we’ll also be asking trusted partners and colleagues to contribute too. So expect posts on the benefits of social media, to tweet or not to tweet, the importance of good communication in your relationships with colleagues and clients.
