How do you pitch to a journalist?

In this episode, I’m joined by Liz Perkins. Liz has experience working across the national press and is currently the night news editor at the Daily Express. Liz is multi-award winning for her journalism and has made significant changes through her work including successfully changing the law through the End This Injustice campaign that led the Government to pledge to overhaul the Family Court through the Domestic Abuse Bill.

Liz was the defence reporter for the South Wales Evening Post/Wales Online where she regularly reported from Afghanistan between 2008 and 2014. She was also elected as a chapter leader of the Oxford Business Alumni Network in London, leading her to single-handedly organise events at Blenheim Palace and the Houses of Parliament. She is also a member of European Women on Boards and Women in Journalism.

We’ll be covering Liz’s varied career, hearing about the exciting opportunities she’s had to work on and her advice on how you can pitch effectively to journalists.
