(Generating Positive Media Coverage is) one of the most informative and comprehensive workshops I've attended. A must for any media or communications person looking to enhance their knowledge base. (Ed Shiller) knows the topics, information well and had excellent use of real-life situations. Brought in each of the attendees' cases in illustrating a point. Comprehensive package (of course materials) that includes excellent reference material. Especially helpful in my work is sample book of programs and initiatives as reference material.
