Matter’s Open Door sessions educate growing companies about earning media coverage. Open Door presentations and consultations can be scheduled to take place within offices, co-working spaces, conference centers, or even coffee shops. We invite decision makers from local businesses, big and small, to learn how to craft a brand message, package company news, pitch specific types of journalists and editors, build healthy social channels, and more.

Hear From Past Open Door Participants

  • Many thanks to the kind people at Matter for supporting our small non-profit. We needed some help to get started with our PR efforts. Loren and the rest of the team listened patiently to our story and helped put us on the path to success. By taking time out to give back to organizations like ours, Matter shows a commitment to the communities in which we live and work. We sincerely appreciate it.

  • I was blown away by how much knowledge I learned from attending Matter Communication's PR 101 session. Their team was so knowledgeable and very friendly. We learned so much about how to approach different news outlets and how to pitch our company to reporters. For an early-stage startup like ours, my colleagues and I were so thankful to learn great tips and tricks from Matter's experienced, award-winning team.

  • Matter presented thoughts, ideas, and a practical approach to increasing our organization's visibility in an easy to understand format.
