Media Presentation Skills

Whether it's a request for a personal opinion response, an on-the-job interview, a feature or headline story, a guided visit to your property, an investigative report, or a crisis situation, most hard-working, unsuspecting, dedicated professionals haven't the fainted idea of what they will face or when they will be face-to-face with a local newspaper, radio, or television reporter or a national media blitz. Nor are they prepared to answer a barrage of quickly-fired, in-your-face questions that the average unsuspecting professional ends up stumbling over.

Media Presentation Skills explores the range of possible scenarios and provides individualized practice for participants providing tools and techniques to effectively communicate and manage a face-to-face meeting with the media.
