Media Training

Whether you’re proactively seeking media publicity, or reactively responding to a media interview request, you must articulate in a confident and coherent way

Having worked in print and broadcast media as a journalist and editor for many years, I will give you the inside edge on what journalists want to get out of the interview. Your agenda may be very different to what they are seeking. I will equip you with the skills to minimise nerves and being caught off-guard, navigate unexpected questions with finesse, and confidently convey your message.
