Then this is an opportunity you won't want to miss!

Recognizing the importance of polished communications for agriculture representatives to gain and maintain social licence for farming and ranching in Saskatchewan, Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan presents a Media Training Workshop April 6, 2016 in Studio B in the College of Education (lower level) at the University of Saskatchewan.

Facilitated by two agricultural communications professionals, Kevin Hursh of Hursh Consulting & Communications Inc., and Adele Buettner, Executive Director of Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan, the workshop enables representatives of organizations to respond in a proficient manner when approched by media.

Both newcomer and those experienced with media exposure will gain the confidence and tools for effective interaction with media through mock television interviews and scrums.

To maximize learning and ensure that every participant benefits from the workshop, spaces are limited. The event traditionally sells out, so register early! Deadline for registration is March 31, 2016.

The fee for the one-day training event is $395 plus GST, which includes lunch and refreshment breaks.
