Course Details

Our one-to-one media coaching is highly interactive, with plenty of discussion, challenging questions, media interviews and playback analysis.

What to expect

Our executive media coaching is fully tailored to you and delivered on Zoom or face-to-face. 

We start with an overview of the media that is relevant to you and your organisation. We explore your target audiences and show how to tailor your messages and tweak them to specific media outlets so that they resonate with your audience. We will review how others in your own specialism or industry are placing articles, getting hits and gaining traction.

We will discuss your key messages and your views on trends in your specialism or industry. We then run our first media interview and analyse your messages, reviewing your choice of words and tone to ensure that they resonate with your audience. 

We will explore your stories and messages showing how to weave your key them in seamlessly during briefings, business updates and media interviews. We will test these messages again through a series of media interviews and questions, which would be played back for validity and impact. We would work with you to hone and enhance these messages before moving on to potentially challenging questions and journalistic tricks.

You will learn how to become media reactive and being able to offer expert comment on relevant stories as they break. Our aim is to ensure that you are comfortable and confidence as the “go-to” media spokesperson and expert commentator in your specialism.
