Why Do You Need Media Training?

Business and Brand Promotion. You want to promote and protect your business. There are many opportunities in the media to promote your business – everywhere from TV and radio to blogs and YouTube – opportunities to get in front of a lot of potential customers and investors quickly, and to establish your brand and your credibility.

Business and Brand Protection. There are also a lot of opportunities to hurt your business and your brand by making mistakes – like not being prepared for interviews, not being clear on your message, being too nervous to give a great interview (getting in front of a microphone is very different than public speaking or a one-on-one conversation about your company), and not being prepared for an unexpected call from a reporter.

Pitch Refinement. If you can pitch your business well to the media and in an interview, you’ll likely be even better pitching your business to potential customers, clients and investors.
