Media Interview Training

15 Nov

Media Trust, W12 7SB

Wednesday 15 November 2017 10:00 - 16:00

Join this practical and intensive session covering press, radio and TV interviews, which will leave you confident and camera ready. This one-day course will make sure you can confidently get your organisation's message across in a media interview.

Participants will learn what makes a newsworthy story, what journalists want and how to identify key messages and communicate these to the media.

Each participant will work with the trainer to understand how to articulate your key messages with maximum impact, in both reactive and proactive media interview scenarios. 

Our expert trainer will help you keep calm, stay on message and make the right impression when it counts. Rehearse your TV and radio manner, make sure you’ll be interesting and engaging over the phone and get familiar with interviewer styles through professional one to one feedback and coaching.   

Really helped me increase my confidence and improve my media skills. I feel much more prepared to do media interviews.
