"It seems to me that the way to remove people's cynicism is,
when asked a straight question, to give a straight answer."
When it comes to speaking in public or being interviewed, it's important to have a confident and reassuring manner.
We work closely with you in advance to ensure all the content and practical exercises are relevant to your particular needs. We'll show you how to prepare for presentations, press conferences and interviews, identify your key messages, anticipate angles the media might pursue and how to answer "difficult" questions - as well as tips regarding body language, appearance and voice.
Our more advanced training includes role play and bespoke scenarios in a central London broadcast studio and/or on location with experienced TV and radio news presenters and crews, who will put you through your paces using varying interviewing styles and techniques.
Participants will be provided with course notes and a digital copy of their interviews and presentations.
JASON HUGHES, The Magistrates Association
“Anna was engaging, fun and highly informative in our media training day. Her understanding of the media and the best communications techniques will prove very useful to our spokesmen. If you need to deal with the media, broadcast or print, I can highly recommend Anna to help you get your message across!”
BEVERLY LANDAIS, Saunderson House Ltd
"I recently worked with Anna to develop a media training course for my firm. She was a delight to deal with: professional yet fun and approachable as well as deeply knowledgeable on the topic and highly responsive to our needs. Anna delivers exactly what she promises."
ANNA NEWLYN, Meeting Place Communications
"MPC has used Anna to carry out media training for both our own staff and our clients. We use Anna because she has loads of relevant industry experience and always tailors the training to exactly what we need."
