Media Training

Media Training

Every brand needs a champion. And a well articulated one at that.

For the brand to be seen in good light, brand champions otherwise known as spokespersons need to articulate the brand’s key value propositions in an attractive manner, at every given opportunity and everywhere. With journalists clamouring for interesting and engaging stories they can develop for their readers, viewers and listeners, they can be incisive in their questioning, often to the discomfort of the spokesperson(s).

Our media training programs are designed to not just help brand spokerpersons to know what to say at the right time but also how to say it in a manner that it converts to strong PR for the brand. Additionally, beyond delivering compelling brand messages it is also designed to help spokespersons answer even the most challenging questions with confidence.

The one day media training program is designed to coach no more than 4-5 spokespersons at a time. Our trainers are expert PR and Communication professionals. Each participant receives an on-camera practice with personalized feedback, as well as an in-person evaluation of their messages and approach
