Media Training UK
Media Training UK. Feel confident, expert, and in control when appearing in the media.
Are your leaders missing media opportunities, because they lack confidence?
Do you regularly have to say no to journalists' enquiries because your colleagues aren't fluent enough in your key messages?
Is a simple lack of communication skill and practical experience hindering your organisation from sharing thought leadership?
Maybe these scenarios sound familiar...
"I had a bad media experience. Now I'm anxious I'll get it wrong."
"We'd like media exposure but don't have a plan to get on air."
"We end up saying no to media enquiries and miss out on opportunities."
A call from a journalist isn't something to fear, it's something to get excited about!

The plan is simple: you learn how to prepare and perform, so you can confidently share your expertise when you're under pressure.
A call from a journalist or podcaster isn't something to fear, but so many people do - especially when they're representing their organisation at high level.
Marvellous Media Training encourages clients to position themselves as credible expert commentators rather than hard put upon company spokespeople. They then see that appearing as a guest interviewee is a golden opportunity to share knowledge and experience.
Your job is made easier because it's easier to sell in expertise, than it is stories.
We've enabled 100s of individuals in organisations of all sizes and sectors to feel confident about appearing on the media. And they leave our training days actually excited about the prospect!
Marvellous Media Training will give your people:

Strategy, support and accountability...
We can help you to create a stable of go-to experts and spokespeople so you never have to turn down an enquiry again. By having a number of trained 'media ready' individuals who understand how to prepare and perform, they can also support each other around appearances.

50% of our training days are devoted to practical experience and critical friend feedback. Our approach is nurturing and supportive.

We show you how to develop long-lasting and fruitful relationships with journalists and the media so you are asked back time and again to share your expertise.
