The Cornish Press Open Day Sept 2019
CORNISH BUSINESSES TAKE ON THE LONDON PRESS
This month, through the Future Focus programme, we took 13 Cornish businesses up to Soho, London in collaboration with Lucy Jenner Brown PR for our September edition of the Cornish Press Open Day.
The Cornish Press open day was born from Lucy’s enthusiasm for the talent Cornwall is home to and nurturing and she is truly passionate about spreading this word.
This trip was the culmination of a series of three labs focussed on PR and Media all about the importance of building strong media relationships and preparing companies for the expectations of the media. The full day event gave businesses the chance to showcase their products to a select audience from the fashion and lifestyle press.
We are a unique and stunningly beautiful little corner of the world with a brilliant pool of style leaders, design trailblazers, innovators and forward thinkers, either born or drawn to this dramatic county. Cornwall is an immensely inspiring place but our geography means we have to be creative and ambitious, willing to explore and take chances to bring ideas to life. With so many businesses here led by lifestyle, these are the brands that have such engaging and aspirational stories to tell, Lucy Jenner-Brown.
This is the second press open day that Unlocking Potential has hosted. This edition of the Media Relations Planning Lab and concluding Press Open Day has brought together an inspiring collective of lifestyle businesses which are all directly connected by their love of the sea, surfing, coastline and countryside. The journey from Cornwall to London to meet the media, to tell their stories, has involved working and learning together as a team, combining skill and sharing ideas – a true collaboration.
