On December 18, 2009, Marina Yermakova, leading account specialist of Mainstream, participated in a seminar „How to organize work of press office“.
Marina Yermakova delivered a report „Press office structure, tasks and functions“. In her 3-hour report, Marina covered thoroughly the mechanism of a press office functioning, and told about ‘pitfalls’, which any PR-manager could face in the process of communication with journalists. In her speech, she shared exact recommendations on how to begin work of a press office, how a crisis-management plan should look like, in what cases it is necessary to involve PR-agency, and many others. The audience, mostly newcomers to PR, found useful her practical suggestions and interesting stories from her many years’ work experience.

Participants are active, interested and well disposed. It is always a pleasure to work with such audience and there is always a strong desire to share knowledge and experience with them.“ In the end of the event, the seminar participants and the president of ‘Novomedia’ Association Ruslan Kukharchuk thanked Marina for participation in the seminar.
