Media Training 101

The (add)ventures team of media training experts includes former news reporters and producers, as well as video and audio professionals, who have worked on the front lines as members of the press. Over the phone or in person, our media experts will interview you in advance of your media training session to determine your specific needs. We’ll hone in on the event you’re preparing for and the types of messages you’d like to convey.
Once our experts have a solid understanding of your needs – whether it’s an upcoming press conference, an event at which you’ll be speaking, or a crisis situation – we’ll develop a training session with correlating mock interview scenarios designed specifically for you.
We will brief you on practical tips, coach you in our media training room, and run you through a series of mock interviews while videotaping you – all conducted privately and in confidence. We’ll work with you to develop and control key, succinct messages; enhance your body language, posture and eye contact; and prepare you for “baited” questions from the media. Our experts will then review the videotape with you and provide recommendations for strengthening your on-camera performance.
