Training: Pitch & Deal and more
THE POPULAR and effective NUJ "Pitch & Deal" training course is happening again on Saturday 3 March. (That is, the course on this day is not the one advertised in an email to Branch members.)
Humphrey Evans writes: A freelance who benefited from this course emailed afterwards to say: "I attended your Pitch and Deal course in August. It was invaluable and, since then, my commission rate has markedly increased." If that is the kind of thing you would like to be able to say of your own deals, sign up to come along. The day costs £90.
Other courses in in the near future include:
- Making Internet Journalism Pay:
London, Wednesday 21 March; NUJ members pay £80
- Social Media for Journalists:
Cardiff, Saturday 24 March; NUJ members pay £25
- Pitch & Deal:
