Who Needs Media Training?
Media Training is encouraged for anyone who could be interviewed on camera, on radio or by a reporter for a newspaper, magazine or online publication. All training is done on camera for immediate review and critique. The training is designed to help the client do the following:
-understand the purpose of the interview and determine its parameters
-define the “talking points” the client wishes to convey
-create interest in those talking points
-discover how to control an interview – including when and how to end it
-learn the “art” of body language and eye contact for an interview
-develop a more powerful delivery voice
-know what to do if an interview goes wrong
How Long is the Training?
Training can range from an hour-long review and rehearsal for an upcoming interview, to a week-long session dealing with technique, style and delivery.
