Whether you’re opening a bar, or you’re a bartender looking to make the next step in your career, at some point you’re going to need to deal with the media.
Perhaps you want to get the word out about your bar’s new cocktail list, or you’ve hired a bartender with exceptional skill you’d like to promote as a draw for your venue. Whatever it is, if you want to know how you should go about navigating the complex and often opaque world of the media and publicity, make sure you get along to this workshop at Sydney Bar Week on Tuesday the 30th of September.
