Why we pitched Mark on this subject? Well, frankly it’s a HOT topic in newsrooms across the country and around the world!
“This is a huge topic and the Real News PR team is on top of it! We believe there are endless talking points from this subject. Work-life balance and productivity which is constantly in the news.” says Real News PR staff. We are actively booking Mark other clients on multiple stations throughout the year chatting about work-life balance.
Timing on this subject is always a key point we use with Real News PR.
As a staff of former journalists, we coach our clients continually on TIMING. “Think about the holidays coming up, perhaps there are employees keeping this in mind when the stress of holiday shopping and planning for the New Year may be on their mind. Employees and Employers alike may be less productive at work during this time of year. Adversely, employers may be pushing HARDER this time of year! Mark is the perfect interview when it comes to timing! He jumps on the subject matter quickly and is very conversational giving TV and Radio hosts plenty of material to use for interviews. Mark is always a soundbite machine!” adds Real News PR staff member, Sarah Crilley. “I see our team continually adding Mark to subject matter like this including the moments we will cover below!”
In this particular interview, we agree at Real News PR that a big company like Microsoft openly sharing their findings on what happened in Japan adds to the feeding frenzy on this subject. Mark Fenner studied this and shares on TV his business insight.
