Imagine a TV camera, microphone or print reporter recording your every word. You blank out, say the wrong thing or were taken out of context. Whether you’re live at five, quoted by the New York Times or appear on You Tube, how you manage the message can shape public perception.
Our real-life media training sessions give you the skills and confidence needed to present yourself and your company in the best possible light. Whether preparing for print, broadcast, satellite, LIVE interviews or social media we provide step-by step tools you need to handle tough questions and shine in the spotlight.
Because all of our coaches are award winning journalists, they know what questions will be asked and how your words will play in the story. In group programs we’ll even write the story to show you how your quotes and sound bites might turn out.
