Our why

We grew out of the frustrations of journalists in the newsroom of TNW. We realized that most people simply don't know how to work with journalists and we set out to change that. Since then we've helped some of the world's biggest names improve their PR, and become the brands that journalists love working with. 

We make PR accessible for every company

We believe in high quality, actionable training that will give you the results you need from day one. All of our courses are led by experts who share their knowledge to get you up to speed, fast.
