More than just world-class media training

You will improve every aspect of your corporate media interview: your words, how you use stories, your messages and how you appear. 

We go beyond the usual focus on tone of voice and body language.  Instead, you’ll road-test and strengthen your messaging and your spokespeople.  You will feel very confident at handing the media.

You get extensive interview practice during the session, to prepare you for all TV, radio and press interviews.

Tailored professional media training

All of our executive media training is bespoke.

You typically work online or at your offices, either 1:1 or in small groups. You can also work in a media studio.

We research and prepare extensively beforehand and tailor the training completely to your needs and your real-life situations.

Typically you will cover:

  • How to be calm and confident under pressure
  • Techniques to stay in control of the interview
  • Overcoming typical tricks used by journalists
  • Ways to respond to tough questions

If you simply want a one-hour refresher session to prepare yourself before a media interview, we can do that, too.

We support PR agencies and in-house communications teams.
