Media Skills Training

Our one-to-one media skills training, is custom-designed for your needs. We’ll teach you how to maintain control of a media interview through focused preparation, how to develop clear, engaging messages, and enhance your natural communication skills to help you deliver those messages in a calm, confident and effective manner.

Media interviews are not easy. Sitting in front of a TV camera or a radio studio microphone can be very daunting. Its difficult to appear natural, relaxed, authoritative, engaged, controlled and spontaneous, all at the same time! For some people, this comes naturally, but for most, it comes with professional media training.

We will tailor each session to meet your specific requirements, whether you are preparing for Press, Radio or TV. We research issues affecting your organization in order to develop practice interview questions for your on-camera training and videoed interviews followed by playback and analysis.

You will learn about:

Print media:

  • Journalists – what they think and what they are looking for
  • How to make journalists print what you say
  • Techniques to ensure you get your message across effectively
  • Dealing with those difficult questions
  • Get the Headline you want

TV/Radio media:

  • What to expect in the studio
  • Create memorable soundbites
  • Use the power of voice
  • how to calm your nerves
  • Look great on television

We offer a safe environment that is both confidential and discreet, you can come to us or we can come to you, you decide!

Media skills Ireland will give you the confidence to take control of any media interview and get your message across. Which would you rather be? Prepared or Ambushed!
