When it comes to tackling the media, the key to success is to be prepared. At minimum, your executive leadership team and head of communications should be prepped for media training in the event a crisis hits, especially when there is no time to spare.
For proactive media campaigns, knowing how to work best with the media today will create a winning situation for all and put your organization ahead of the rest.
Our media training sessions are taught by former journalists, television hosts and producers, former press secretaries and new-media experts. Our content is modern and timely, and is flexible to meet the requirements of your organization.
Our sessions include:
Media landscape: How traditional media and social media work together, what journalists need and how the industry has changed.
The Pitch: What makes your story unique and ‘newsworthy’.
