Want to get your business in the press without hiring an agency to do it for you? Tartle's bespoke two-day DIY PR training courses will teach you how to craft press pitches that cut through the noise, and keep coverage coming even when your business has nothing noteworthy to announce.
Delivered by national journalists turned media relations consultants, you'll learn how the media works, what makes a story, and how to pitch.
We don't just deliver a one-size-fits-all course. First, we get under the bonnet of your business, and look at what the audiences you want to reach are reading and listening to. Then, we design a programme just for you that's packed with story ideas you can take away and action.
We also offer ongoing support. Once you get started, you'll inevitably have questions, and we're more than happy to help.

In-house marketers at SMEs who've been handed a PR hospital pass!
We also run bespoke courses for those just starting their careers in PR.
