Crisis Media Training
We help people become first-rate communicators...
Our crisis media training courses are tailored around you. Depending on the type of crisis you could face trade and national press or even TV and radio broadcasters, so this training will prepare you for all possible situations. This course is normally run for those with some interview experience but we can design the session for those who are new to the media. Due to the nature of this media training we generally sign confidentiality agreements before we start working on your course. As mentioned, our crisis media courses are all specifically tailored but, as a guide, take a look below to see what we would advise covering in your session.
- An introduction to the media in a crisis: Why should you talk to the media in a crisis / The difference a crisis makes for the media / The way journalists operate when covering a crisis story
- Preparing your approach: Refining your key messages / Researching the audience and journalist / Setting your agenda / The Soundbite
- During the interview: Bridging and other interview techniques / Body Language / Dos and Don’ts / Handling Press conferences
The interviews we conduct in our crisis media training sessions are testing, realistic and relevant. This is to ensure that, whatever sort of interview situation delegates face in the outside world, they will be prepared.
Depending on your requirements, we will conduct a series of one or more of the following interviews:
- Face to Face
- Down the line
