HOW CAN MEDIA TRAINING SUPPORT MY BUSINESS?
The media landscape is constantly evolving. That is why media training that is fit for the digital age is vital for businesses that are determined to thrive.
This hi-tech transformation has seen our traditional forms of media overtaken by new platforms which have opened up exciting new opportunities for all.
Now tech-savvy journalists are more likely to request office-based interviews via laptops and smartphones than they are the traditional face-to-face briefings.
And the home-based interview via Zoom, WhatsApp and other video and streaming platforms are increasingly preferable to a visit to the studio for radio and television.
Plus, live social media broadcasts via smartphones and podcast interviews show just how much things are changing.
While newspaper circulation figures aren’t what they used to be, tabloids and broadsheet press still alive and kicking as the growth of their online offerings demonstrate and they continue to lead the way with the news.
The rate of change has been rapid but the right type of media training which embraces new media innovations will make sure that businesses keep up to speed.
It will also ensure you are ready to make the most of new opportunities and rise to any potential challenges to raise the profile of your company in a way that helps to boost your business. Media training is an important part of any public relations work.

OUR TRAINING APPROACH
To align communications with organisational objectives, you can select a specific module depending on level of media experience and situation. For example, get prepared for a TV interview with tough questions about a bad situation. Our courses can help hit the right tone, whether you’re starting out on your public relations journey or are already a seasoned pro looking for media training tips.
From ‘Introduction to the media in all its forms’ through ‘How to get your message out through media interviews’ to ‘Handling the media in a crisis’, we will work with you to mould training to meet specific individual needs. Communicate your core message in the best way possible to get the media coverage you deserve.
Our courses are led by media relations specialist Rob Stewart who will draw upon his 30-plus years’ journalism experience as a Daily Telegraph correspondent, Sunday Times, Reuters and national tabloid freelancer and senior news reporter with leading regional titles.
He will be supported by our videographer Izzy Bryant, who will film interviews and provide playback for the teams to discuss.
