Okarito Kayaks used the time they had from the COVID-19 downturn to address a thorny problem – a widespread gorse invasion around Ōkārito Lagoon. They put the word out about ‘GorseBusters’, hoping for a few volunteers.

What is it really like to be interviewed on the radio, TV or for print? This practical and insightful course, run by award-winning broadcaster Mary Lambie, is designed to help you better understand what it takes to appear your very best in broadcast media.
As PR and Communications professionals you are constantly putting your clients or your key company personnel in front of the media – maybe it is time for you to experience exactly what that feels like?
The world of digital has completely changed the PR/Communications game in recent years. Audiences are more reliant on digital than ever before and are now using multiple devices and channels to get information about brands and who to trust. Brands also expect to be seen and found in all the right places online, over and above just traditional media.
Great influencing skills can ensure communications professionals are at the top table, able to advise on strategy, and in a position to make a real difference to their organisation’s decision making and therefore its reputation.
Gaining influence is an important skill for communicators. It is not more important than being technically brilliant, but it can be as important, for a practitioner who wants to progress, and really make a difference.
