PR Power Up for Scale-Ups

PR is a secret weapon for technology companies particularly those who are on a growth trajectory. It can be the most effective way to build brand awareness, raise your profile and attract talent, investors and customers. Bill Gates didn’t say “If I was down to my last dollar, I would spend it on public relations” for nothing.

During the PR Power Up, Sian will explore:

  • Why do tech companies need PR?
  • What exactly is PR?
  • What you need to start
  • What not to do
  • Should you be doing PR right now? In the midst of a pandemic?
  • How PR can be a valuable part of your growth strategy today

Birmingham Tech Week is run in association with:
