Whether you’re delivering good or bad news, how you come across in the media plays a crucial role in shaping the public image of yourself and your organisation. The content is key but the way in which you bring your message across is at least as important.
Our media training teaches clients how to deal with the media through realistic role plays, lots of do’s and don’ts and a focus on interview techniques and phrasing. We use just a little theory but the training is very practice-oriented: practice makes perfect and that certainly applies here. Also, the training is tailored to your specific wishes and background.
