Larger businesses tend to put their company spokespeople through rigorous media coaching or media training courses to help them deal with difficult questions and get the most out of any opportunity. However, small-business owners are missing out on the chance to raise their own media profiles because the cost of a professional media trainer can be financially out of reach for start-ups and small businesses. That’s why we’ve developed the COMPLETE MEDIA CONFIDENCE FOR THE SMALLER BUSINESS course.

If you want to:

  • Understand how to get coverage in the press, radio and television to raise your brand profile and build your business, even if yours is a smaller company
  • Learn how to deal with tricky questions from journalists
  • Discover the ‘media mindset’ so you know what will catch reporters’ attention—the essential do’s and don’ts?
  • Get your message across without being misquoted.
