Facing the press can be a daunting experience, whether it is to promote a new product, stave off a crisis or plug an event. It is all too easy to get
tongue tied, miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity or, even worse, end up presenting your business in a negative light.
Our media training courses are run by journalists who have made a career in digging out information and asking difficult questions, so know exactly how the
media can be handled. They will ease the pressure and stress of dealing with the press and help turn you into a brilliant and skilled commentator.
Facing the press across the disciplines of print, television and radio, our media training includes training in interview skills, verbal and non-verbal
communication, how to handle difficult questions and how to best present your key messages, all under the scrutiny of a microphone or television camera. Oh
yes, and why 'no comment' is never the right thing to say.
The course includes training with television and radio equipment, and real life exercises such as being doorstepped, mock press conferences and interviews.
