Andrew Lynch, Assistant Business Editor at the Sunday Times, will be providing media relations advice to some of the UK’s fastest and most entrepreneurial businesses at a special dinner debate on Monday 13 October in Bristol.

The debate will focus on how high potential businesses and mid-market companies can punch above their weight when it comes to communications and in turn drive up business performance.

Lynch will cover off what he’s looking for from businesses that pitch stories into him and his team, as well as the different editorial opportunities for the SME sector within the paper.

Chris Lawrance, Managing Director at JBP, said: “Business owners will get first hand insight on how to get published in one of the UK’s leading newspapers, renowned for its business coverage. The debate will also provide an opportunity for companies to discuss how they can effectively communicate to meet their strategic goals.”
