How confident are your top team in handling media interviews? We can train them in techniques for getting the right message(s) across, to understand the media agenda and to maximise the opportunities a media interview offers. Our experience shows that our media training courses build confidence and dramatically improve performance.
MANAGING A CRISIS
‘Are you going to resign?’ ‘Will someone be sacked for this disaster?’ Regularly senior executives of major companies and senior politicians make a hash of answering such questions when responding to a disaster. We can show you what to expect and rehearse you in how to deal effectively with media outrage if your organisation is hit by an unforeseeable crisis. When the camera crews are on the way, it’s too late to prepare.
COMMUNICATING WITH SOCIAL MEDIA
How effectively do your senior people handle social media, where one false word or ambiguous phrase can provoke a Twitter storm? Can they successfully combine their message(s) for the broadcast media with a social media campaign?
We can train them in techniques to deal with criticism and abuse and the ability to survive in the social media jungle.
PRESENTATION SKILLS AND PUBLIC SPEAKING
Many of us would prefer a visit to the dentist to speaking to a live audience. Yet an effective presentation or speech can persuade and motivate. Some can even inspire.
Our training builds confidence by showing how best to prepare for addressing an audience, by providing an opportunity to practice your delivery in a safe environment, and by receiving constructive feedback.
We don’t believe that a lecture delivers effective training in communicating. All our courses are ‘hands-on’ often involving filming and playbacks. They also include challenging group exercises and individual, constructive feedback.
