Check this out – a short movie about how to raise your your media profile in 2013

November 29, 2012 Posted in : Experts, Galzacs, Galzacs Guide


Right now we are recruiting experts for ‘Galzac’s Gude’  - a new idea that will help you to get your voice heard by the media for a shoestring budget.

If one of your objectives for 2013 is to up your profile and get your business better known, have a look at the video below.

I started ‘Galzac’s Guide to Expert Sources’ because I believe expert voices should be heard by the widest possible audience. We’ve already hundred’s of experts signed up and we’re building a community of doers, thinkers and curious minds who want to share their ideas with the world.

‘Galzac’s Guide’ will amplify expert voices by making the media aware of their knowledge and experience, by matching their expertise with the topical stories of the day, and sharing their great ideas through social media.

The 2013 edition will combine a must-have print edition with a dynamic website and social media resource that will connect Ireland’s expert sources with the media. We want to be the bible of experts on every journalist’s desk, laptop and smart phone.
If you would like to be listed fill out this form here http://www.galzacs.com/page/get-listed/ or give Gaye Gleeson a call on (01) 254 1845.

3 new books for your Expert reading list

November 2, 2012 Posted in : Experts, Experts Reading List, Galzacs, Galzacs Guide
