NSHMBA Puerto Rico Hosts Q2PR Media Training Workshop

JM De Jesus of Quadrant Two PR Presents Successful Media Interview. Techniques for Professionals Workshop to the National Society of Hispanic MBAs Puerto Rico chapter on Tuesday, July 1, 2008 at 7:00 pm at the Colegio de Abogados in San Juan.

San Juan, PR, June 30, 2008 --(PR.com)-- J.M. De Jesus will lead a workshop on Media Interview Techniques for professionals hosted by the National Society of Hispanic MBA’s Puerto Rico chapter on Tuesday, July 1, 2008 at the Colegio de Abogados in Miramar, Puerto Rico from 7 pm to 9 pm.

“It’s important that professionals understand the multifaceted media landscape and varying agenda of news organizations and journalists when presenting their own messages and viewpoints to the public via the use of the media as a vehicle,” said José Manuel De Jesús, President of Quadrant Two Public Relations, a nationally recognized PR agency specialized in media training and the US Hispanic and multicultural markets.

“Often times the professional is so excited that they landed the interview that they lose site that although the journalist may be acting friendly, he or she is not their friend, and has a job to do. There is no such thing as an ‘off the record’ remark,” De Jesus added.

“We are very happy to have Jose Manuel train us on this important topic, especially as the national media in Puerto Rico grows in importance, complexity and numbers,” said Ricardo Torres-Rivera, president of the NSHMBA Puerto Rico chapter.

The Colegio de Abogados de Puerto Rico (Law College) is located at Avenida Ponce de Leon #808. A $25 donation is requested from participants and organizers expect the venue to be filled to capacity. The funds will be donated to the NSHMBA Scholarship.
