Creative Solutions director, Jeremy Rose and Newport Business Association NBA founder has steadily grown media coverage with expert help and guidance from NCTJ. Regular reporting and media stories in local press, regional radio and national papers has enabled Creative Solutions and NBA to have a voice in the community.
Jeremy Rose, Founder of Newport Business Association, notes: “We’re very proud of our association with NCTJ. A national and internationally renown organisation located locally for our members. Our members receive expert media training from international experts on a number of courses: how to write effective press releases, construct web sites for maximum impact, creating the right image and developing media skills to capture the interest of editors, reporters and the public alike.”
“NCTJ offers us qualified training that has enabled us to promote our ethos, community projects and business standards. We understand the structure of getting a press release into the media environment, and in such a competitive market for news stories, how important it is to develop the right image, right format, to make it easier for media people to use our material. We feel confident we can communicate and promote Newport’s thriving business community to the most important people in the business: our customers.”
“One major success was the promotion of our Newport Railway Station initiative – The Lavender Line. We created press releases for the local media, and were delighted when BBC Radio Essex picked up the story and ran a Saturday prime-time slot highlighting our initiative. We had Greater Anglia, a national railway company commenting on our hard work at Newport Station, as well as Essex Bee Keepers’ Association commenting on how NBA is making a bee and butterfly friendly habitat at Newport station. We were then reported in the local press for this coverage. Overall we raised further funds and developed local community support to develop the initiative further. We want our green corridor to radiate out to other areas and create a bee-line to Newport.”
