It's one of the corner stones of any PR strategy - be it for a PR consultancy or an in-house department. A Virtual Press Office (VPO), well designed and highly maintained, gives your client or brand a key opportunity to take the high ground; a chance to create a resource that is truly useful to the media and in turn ensures a greater share of media coverage voice in this increasingly digital age.

This no nonsense on-line webinar takes you through the key ingredients required to building a VPO. What should it contain? How should it look? What functionality should it have?
