Are you ready to be inside a media storm? 

Need to be better prepared for handling reporter interviews?

You know the day is coming. The media will be calling with tough questions you aren’t eager to answer.

If you’re not prepared, the results can be costly to you and your organization. There’s a better path, one where you will spend less, increase your confidence and avoid bigger headline headaches.

Our highly-rated “Crisis Communications” one-day training covers:

·       Basics of how the media operate and rules of engagement (what you can & can’t say)

·       How editors and reporters pick stories to cover and coping with media bias.

·       Staying disciplined to your planned message.

·       How to answer hostile questions and bridge answers back to your story.

·       Best practices for developing key points for social media, newspapers, TV and radio.

Our hands-on program includes videotaped live exercises where you will be questioned by a reporter and a simulated press conference with immediate instructor feedback.

The training will be led by Mark Weaver, a national advisor on crisis communications and media relations with nearly three decades of national and Ohio-based experience with public and private-sector clients. He’s the founder of Communications Counsel Inc. and always in demand for his expertise.

You’ll even learn what happens if you attack a reporter with a garden hoe! Hint, that person did not attend Mark’s training.

Don’t be that person!
