Media Relations Training Workshops

Are you nervous, scared or unprepared for media interviews?
Are you thrown off guard by either tough questions or hostile reporters?
Are you looking for more effective ways to get your organization’s message out?

Then you should sign up for one of our media relations training workshops. Participants learn what the news media expects from you; how to develop a plan for when a reporter calls; how to face reporters with confidence and make the most of your media encounters; how to handle ambush interviews and take control of out-of-control interviews; how to develop key messages and deliver an effective quote; how to avoid common interview pitfalls; and how to dress for interviews and use body language and tone effectively.

Please contact us to sign up for our next course. When we have enough participants we’ll organize a day-long workshop for you and others who are looking for the same type of information. If you can’t wait, we do host workshops for organizations with a minimum of four participants. Get a few of your colleagues together and we’ll tailor the presentation specifically for you.
