Media Interview Skills Interviewee Preparation

An interview with the media, be it for television, radio, or print press – face-to-face or remotely, is your opportunity to get out your message, promote your Company or service, and enhance your reputation.

It is also a platform to correct misconceptions, “fire fight” in a crisis, and protect your reputation.

Our Accredited media professionals – all of whom are professionally active, will provide you with insight, tips and techniques on everything from media requirements and how to handle their demands, to more effectively constructing soundbites.

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.

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.
