Meeting the needs of the modern media

In today’s fast paced business world it is harder than ever to attract the attention of the media. Journalists are busier now than they ever have been and are now responsible for publishing a host of different elements from email newsletters to special reports to blogs and magazines of course.


This means that their time is pressurised and therefore spending time out of the office attending press conferences, briefings and meetings has to be justified completely. Speculative fact finding missions are not in vogue!


This is why we have launched Give Me 5. It’s a simple way for journalists to gather a dozen stories while spending only a few hours away from their desks.


The event is run in a speed-networking format, which allows a company spokesperson to brief up to 12 journalists in quick 5 minute successions.


It’s a simple and enjoyable way for journalists to gather a dozen stories while spending only a few hours away from their desks and the results for both companies and journalists has been great.

What they say about us

MD, Fresh PR

“It may seem a counter- intuitive move for a PR agency to sign up to attend an event organised by another agency but in the case of Give me 5 I would say to any other agent they should lay aside their fears. Give Me 5 is neutrally branded and has its own identity and, having had my clients take part many times, there is no attempt to steal them away. Clients love the event, journalists love it and it's inexpensive. Taking part only reflects that you have your finger on the pulse.”

Aaron Blutstein

Editor, Plant & Works Engineering

"All in all a very successful event and a great networking opportunity.”

Companies

Media

1. Why has the event been launched?

Give Me 5 has been launched because it answers a real need for technical companies to speak easily to the media. Many companies don’t know how to best interact with their press and the Give Me 5 concept makes it easy and cost effective for them. Also, for the journalists it gives them a dozen stories and a dozen new contacts in a two hour time frame. They are busier than ever and this suits their needs.


2. Who organises it?

Give Me 5 is organised by Technical Associates Group, a global communications agency that has been established for 30 years and has offices in London, Hamburg and Singapore.


3. Who owns it?

The idea is that the event is ‘owned’ by the industry – the journalists and the companies and trade bodies that take part.


4. How often does it take place?

The event takes place twice a year - May and October time.


5. Where does it take place?

The event takes place at different locations around central London.


6. How do I book a place?

Get in touch with Silvana Gjonpjetri via Email: sgjonpjetri@technical-group.com or call 01582 390980.


7. How much does it cost?

The price for each company taking part is £1,250. For that you get a five minute interview with each of the journalists that attends (around 12).


8. Can I ask for certain individual journalists to attend?

Yes of course. We have really strong relationships with the very best journalists in the trade and technology sector but we are always willing to invite individual journalists recommended by companies as we are confident they will really get something out of attending.
