Win a Training Session with Media Coach Bill McGowan

Bill McG2

Over the past two weeks, we’ve shared the insights gained from our recent conversations with media coach to the stars Bill McGowan, who gave us tips on pitching and explained how the principles outlined in his latest book apply to the PR discipline.

Would you like to score a two-hour training session with Bill?

If you answered “yes”, then just tell us about the most challenging pitch you’ve ever made in the comments. The first winner (who will be chosen at random) will get a private two-hour coaching session with Bill, and the second and third winners will get an invitation to come into the Mediabistro office to record their own shorter sessions with him.

Again, all winners will be chosen at random.

Don’t be shy; share your toughest pitches below. (Sorry, but you do have to use your real name.)
