Storytelling

Our media training courses teach you how to tell your story and communicate your values, even within complex media interactions. The most critical question you need to focus on answering is why people should care about your brand and the service or product you offer, as well as the values you represent.

Evolve your messages

These key messages change over time to reflect the important events and changes within your industry. Our media training course will help you continually evolve your messages, so that your core values are always communicated to the media.

Identifying individual needs

Our training is designed to be as dynamic as possible, and the first step of the training consists of identifying your unique and personal needs, not only for our sake, but yours as well.

Knowing exactly where you stand and what you need will pave the way for the next steps in your process. This means you will be more aware of what you need to do exactly in order to have successful communication with the media.

Understanding your brand identity

Key to all our services is understanding the core principles of your brand and your unique value proposition.

The more you understand what drives your company, what gives it value, and why people should care about it, the stronger your story will be.

Part of our media training is gaining insight into your desired brand image and helping you relay these messages in your media interactions.

The purpose of PR is to find that unique angle that can elevate your company over its competitors by communicating its unique value structure and telling stories rather than direct selling.

Turn your messaging into soundbites

Once we understand the core values of your brand, we will help you develop the key messages that you will seek to deliver in your media interactions.

These key messages should address the core of what you want your target audience to hear. They should be a couple of sentences that can be both delivered and understood with ease.

Clear, to the point, informative, and engaging messages are what media representatives usually look for, which is why these features will help you score successful relationships with media outlets and journalists.

Dodging bullets

The goal of our public relations training courses is to prepare you for a variety of interactions with the press and the media.

It is highly likely that at some point an interviewer will ask an uncomfortable question that you either will not want or will not know how to answer.

Our PR training ensures that you will be prepared for these scenarios, ensuring that even challenging interviews avoid disaster.

Speaking to the media

The last step of this public relations training program is by no means any less important than the others, and this is to practice!

We will help you prepare with mock Q&A scenarios, preparing you for all possibilities and any difficult questions you may face.

By focusing on these challenging situations, you will get more comfortable with answering questions and bridging the conversation back in the direction you prefer, so you can always communicate with the media in a way that aligns with your brand image and key messages.

We make sure you know exactly what your values are, so when you think about an answer, you should always consider the values first and how these values can be conveyed through the actions or words you intend to use.

Role-playing

A technique we employ throughout our PR and marketing course is role-playing.

This serves the purpose of bolstering your media skills through interactive media training.

We successfully explore how different scenarios might play out, and prepare you for any encounters you may experience in real life.

It further polishes your speaking skills, helps you think on the spot, and gives you the confidence to be able to freely talk to the media without hesitation and with certainty in the values and work of your brand.
