Course Details

Not everyone needs to speak to the media in a crisis, but they do need to understand how to protect your reputation.

This informative and entertaining seminar gives a good insight into the workings of crisis driven media. You will learn how to spot and prevent a potential media crisis and how to deal with serious issues, including “door stepping journalists” and crisis driven media.

How it works

This three-hour seminar is designed to give a good overview of crisis driven media, show how to handle media enquiries and deal with door-stepping journalists. It is ideal as a half-day event or as a talk at your annual conference or networking event.

We include video clips to illustrate our points and encourage audience interaction. We usually ask for one, or more, volunteers to take part in a practice media interview. We would then reply the interview, highlighting the lessons to be learnt from this random example.
