Have your say

I was pleased to be invited to give a workshop on why businesses should be getting in touch with media such as The News to shout about what they’ve done.

Not just because I got to use my Grade 5A Speech and Drama qualification – ‘project your voice, Emma. Project!’ – but more because it was part of a series of free monthly workshops hosted at Portsmouth Central Library that are designed to help businesses grow.

Unfortunately anyone going along to subsequent sessions will have missed my presentation, lucky things. But do find out when they are next on.

It’s not often you get something for nothing, but workshops like this are there to help the local economy – and that includes all of us who work in the community.
