Handling the Media

Engaging with the media is a mine-field. Whether it’s print press, TV or radio, we’ll help you to make the most of your opportunities, and enhance your audience engagement.

The Communication Experts provides top level industry professionals who will help you to understand the media, what they’re looking for, how they operate, and the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) methods journalists use to elicit information.

You’ll analyse and discuss real-life news items to understand what makes a story.

Ms Lesser provided media training for senior Army officers tasked with delivering sensitive subject matters within clear Government guidelines, comprehensively briefing and training them to handle questions posed by national journalists with confidence. Ms Lesser also delivered on group media training courses including Army Unit Public Relations Officers. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a highly competent media trainer.

Josette’s training session was one of the best I have ever been on, and by chance last week I was able to do a radio interview for the agency at short notice, making use of her advice. Please pass on my thanks and recommendation to all involved.
