Why media & message training?

“It is always a risk to speak to the press: They are likely to report what you say.” - Hubert H. Humphrey

Building confidence and unlocking your potential is what it takes to enable you to deal professionally with journalists. 

  • We take you as close as it gets to the real thing.
  • In front of a camera and experienced journalists we put you in different, realistic interview situations.
  • Our experienced journalists provide you with valuable feedback and useful tools.

We design our courses to match your requirements with any interview formats you may wish; different types of print, TV, telephone or radio interviews.

We do individual training, training of a few participants, of larger groups – and in any language you may require.
