A MASTERCLASS on writing a winning entry for this year's Wiltshire Business Awards will pilot this Monday.

The Wiltshire Business awards, which returns for its 25th year in April, is asking for applications for businesses to show themselves in the best light.

The masterclass will be led by Rhona Jack from The PR Catalyst, who has more than 30 year's experience in PR and marketing and has won awards for the likes the Barclarys and HSBC.

The masterclass is on Monday 17th December at the Workshed, London Street, Swindon. To book a place go to bit.ly/2E4s9S7 or email rhonajack@theprcatalyst.co.uk. It will cost an introductory rate of £49.99, which will goes up to £99.99 for the course on January 10.
