Facing a media interview for print media, the radio, television or online can be a daunting experience, particularly if you have never done it before. If you had never learned to swim and somebody threw you in the deep end of a pool you would not be expected to ‘just know’ what to do, no matter how many times you had watched people swimming on TV.
The same goes for performing in any kind of media. There are techniques you can learn, mental attitudes you can adopt and you always need to ‘practice practice practice’ as you would with any task you would like to be good at.
Ocarina Media Training can help you embrace media as part of your business strategy. We can help prepare you for your interview by helping you to clarify what it is that you need to say, thinking about how you are going to say it and preparing you mentally for the performance aspect of the interview.
We can help you in a very practical way with practice audio and television interviews and rehearsals. We can also prepare you for ‘devil’s advocate’ type questioning and crisis management situations.
A good media profile can help you brand yourself as well as your organization. When people see you perform well on TV or hear you on radio or read about you in the paper or online they can see for themselves that you know what you are talking about and this builds trust. Through training and practice and a solid media performance you can become the ‘go to’ person to connect to and do business with.
Training can be done on a one-to-one basis or with a small class group.
