Media training is designed to compliment the presenter training. Sessions will be split over the the two days, so that participants in both trainings will be able to attend all sessions and maximize their time.

Each participant will undertake an intense one-on-one TV interview under lights, followed by a constructive critique, by media expert Phil Quin.

Why is media training important to being a presenter?
Media training begins by recognizing the inordinate amount of anxiety that dealing with the news media inspires in most people. This stems from the understandable fear that a mistake in a media interview can be amplified to devastating and humiliating effect for an organization or individual. For the people involved with presentation training, however, this will be tempered by an appreciation that the media can play an extremely useful role in promoting their agenda. Media training is a way for participants to negate the risks and leverage the opportunities.
