Introduction to Digital PR & Outreach Workshop

The CEO & Founder of Kaizen, Pete Reis-Campbell, will be delivering a full-day workshop on digital PR and Outreach, and he’d love to pass his wisdom on! By combining the very best in traditional PR tactics and scaling them with a content marketing strategy, Pete has built a unique approach to creating digital content and convincing journalists to cover it every day. This is a rare opportunity to learn his unique strategy on how to land links and coverage from websites like Mashable, AOL, Lifehacker, HuffPost and major newspapers.

His company Kaizen, founded five years ago, is the fastest growing content marketing agency in the UK (as awarded by The Drum), and has launched over 600+ campaigns for the purposes of link building and secured over 10,000+ links off top tier sites.
