"The public outreach team at the Clean Clothes Campaign found the training with Amy very helpful, giving us a much-needed boost for what can be a challenging space to crack. The training was accessible to and beneficial for us all, those of us who had little experience of working with media but also those who had significant experience. Amy shared vital insights into approaching journalists, gave advice on specific topics we were trying to get coverage on, flagged outlets and platforms that were not on our radar, which we really appreciated. We are already seeing results from advice that Amy gave us!"
Priscilla Dudhia, public outreach and case strategy, Clean Clothes Campaign, Brussels
