Our media-training simulates real-live scenarios, drawing on extensive reporting experience. Led by a professional using broadcast TV equipment, it is the closest you can get to the real thing.
We work on preparation, content, visuals, body language, stagecraft, memorisation, dealing with stress, handling questions. Our workshops equip you with a set of tools covering for a wide range of situations.
A good speech stays with the audience long after the speaker sits down. We work on each component of speech individually developing storytelling techniques and building confidence.
