We provide our members with regular access to journalists and editors and training to improve their multimedia skills.

Our Impact

Our members report improved access to media decision makers as a result of attending our briefings with journalists and editors. And a better understanding of how to pitch stories has helped to increase media coverage for our members and the issues that concern them.

Advocacy

We have influenced the BBC Charter to include a stronger commitment to global coverage and helped to shape the Channel 4 remit with an obligation to feature information and views from around the world.

Access

Our member organisations report more media coverage of their stories and issues as a direct result of the contacts made with journalists through IBT.

Capacity

Our members have developed practical skills, across multiple teams, changing how they engage with the media and the impact they have. We provide regular training in social media, photography and shooting and editing with a smartphone.

Research

IBT members use our reports to help them plan their media strategies.

Briefing with GB News

There has been much comment about the rise of GB News and criticism of its overtly right wing approach to news. For this briefing, we have invited Sophie Berman, Executive Editor, News, to talk to us about the new channel.

What does she see as its USP? What opportunities are there for IBT members to pitch stories and appear as guests? If you’re thinking about whether you want to work with GB News, here’s your chance to make up your mind.

Wednesday March 20th on Zoom. 12 noon UK time.
