Are you an expert?
Journalists are often looking to speak to people who are experts in particular areas of research, especially those that regularly make the news. 

Knowledgeable, articulate spokespeople add both personality and credibility to a story and so are highly sought-after. Please let us know if you would be prepared to act as an expert in your field.

Bear in mind that ‘an expert’ means something different to the public than it does to your peers. Even if you don’t consider yourself an authority on a subject, your experience and knowledge is likely to be greater than that of the majority of people and could be very helpful in bringing a story to life. It can also ensure the media cover stories as accurately as possible.
