Reasons Why You Should Get Media Training
What Is Media Training
Media training is designed to train you and your team when fronting the media. There are many reasons why you should get media training and so the sessions come in many different forms.
Camera and radio interview training is the most common, while presentation and communication skills are also taught at Adoni Media. The training teaches you how to appear confident in front of cameras and how to remain in control if thrown a curveball of a question.
Media training is necessary for any person within a company who deals with the media regularly or even for the first time. It is designed to help all levels of business from start-ups to the CEO and executives. Media training helps clarify your business’s key messaging while giving you industry tips and tricks on how to get the most out of a journalist’s interview.
Benefits of Media Training
There are numerous advantages to having your team receive media training and be trained yourself. For a CEO, having the assurance that your employees can front the media with confidence and the ability to tailor the key messages you want is vital. It is even more important in crisis situations where you have the ability to send an employee you know has had the necessary training to control the interview. Even better when there are multiple teams trained in your business.
Preparation is key for relations with the media, which is why our media training allows you to fully understand how the media works. You are taught how journalists create questions and what they use from your answer. Knowing this allows you to give them what they want in a clear concise way while also decreasing your chance of being misquoted or forgetting key messages. The training also makes you understand the different styles journalists use while interviewing so you can be prepared to face them all, including the ‘tricky’ questions.
