Media training

Face to face media training workshops are available for individuals or groups of two or three people together.

Also available is the 8-PLUS, a large group seminar for eight or more people.

Most clients request in-house training. I bring all the gear to your office, including video camera; TV monitor and audio recording gear.  If you prepare to train away from the office, you also have the option of boardroom hire. The training is available throughout New Zealand.

All  workshops feature on-camera interview rehearsals & critiques. Video copies are supplied after training. In a typical media training session, you'll learn how to:

  • Respond to unexpected media calls
  • Bridge to your talking points
  • Prepare for a typical interview
  • Setup a remote studio
  • Promote positive reporting
  • Engage through story-telling
  • Manage the negative or awkward
  • Respond during a crisis
