FIRST TAKE

What we say

“For most people appearing in front of a camera or speaking into a microphone instantly fills them with terror. But with so much media in the modern world, a business, organisation or individual who appears comfortable on screen, sounds confident on the radio or who gives good quotes to the written press can dramatically enhance their reputation. Effective communication is an invaluable skill. But it is one that can be taught. Our bespoke media training examines your communications skills and ensures that you will be confident to deal with the media and deliver your message in the most positive and dynamic way. We achieve consistently excellent feedback from our diverse client base such as HSBC, the Arts Council and the Economist. All our media training courses are tailored to your requirements. We take a comprehensive brief from you, conduct our own research into the issues and come up with a structure that will maximise the time you have available. We offer courses in small groups or in a 1-to-1 format.”

International School of Communication

http://www.isoc.com/london/media-training
What they say

Training for media interviews is essential for everyone who speaks to journalists because so much is at stake. Get it right, and the people who matter to you will get the right message, loud and clear. Get it wrong, and you might stir up a crisis. The greatest media spokespeople appear natural, relaxed, authoritative, likeable, engaged, controlled and spontaneous. They make their case convincingly and memorably – whether promoting everyday news messages, answering difficult questions, or managing a full-on crisis. For a few, it comes naturally. For most, it’s good media training. ISOC media training builds exactly these skills through high quality interview coaching
