Helen Trevorrow runs Green Row PR and she has a lot of experience working with Green and Ethical companies.
Green Row has just been approved by the UK Training Grant Association to give one to one Public Relations training ? and they will pay for it!
Here is a message from Helen:
We have done this PR training for a couple of clients over the last two months, but they have just approved us for training as many people as we can find over the next three months.
There are three conditions you need to meet first:
? Have you been a resident of the EU for the last 3 years?
? Have you NOT used a UK training grant before?
? There should 5 people in (or working for) your business (this is not a strict policy so think IT guy, any agencies / help you may have to bulk this up if you need to)
If yes for these questions, then you are eligible for the grant.
In order to register for this, you need to meet with a representative of the scheme for 30 minutes (Gilly Meek) and she will ask you the following questions:
? What are your current business objectives (e.g. marketing the business, launch new products etc)?
? What are your personal objectives (e.g. grow the business profile, increase revenue, inspire employees etc)?
? What are your company strengths?
? What are your key personal development needs that training can help you with? (I.e. marketing your business)
? How will you know if this PR training has met your needs?
If you want a half day one-to-one training, this will cost ?500 and they will pay for it all
If you want full a day one-on-one training, this will cost ?1000 and they will pay for ?750 of it
If you want full a day one-on-one training plus a one month PR help line to assist you, this will cost ?1500 and they will pay for ?1000 of it
Gilly will be in our offices on Friday 7th May all day long, so if you want to take advantage of this, just email Eleasha at [address removed] and she will schedule in a time for you to meet Gilly that day. If you are not available that day, we can try for another slot with her, just let Eleasha know.
