Media Training Course

View Classes

Learn to address the media with our communication & career development courses in Sydney.

Having to suddenly face the media with a barrage of questions and perhaps cameras – can be quite a confronting ordeal. You stumble, cannot collect your thoughts, and staying on message is more than challenging. But with the appropriate training, credible information, and advice you can feel comfortable in this situation and be sure to get your message across the way you want to.

Media Training will teach you how to get your point across, how not to be tricked into saying things you don’t want to and how to maintain your composure. Media Training varies greatly from public speaking as it centres on specific skills and circumstances indirectly addressing an audience.

The training applies to all types of media – press, radio, and television.
