Media Training: How to Deliver Compelling Messages

Professional Development Workshop Set 2

Sunday, Oct. 12, 4:45–6 p.m.

Room: Washington 3/4

Track: Tools and Techniques

The most successful executives are strategic, and speak powerfully, knowledgeably and succinctly. Spokespersons and PR practitioners who coach them can benefit from preparation, including agenda setting and message development, to determine what to say and how to say it. Receive interview delivery and control techniques, dos and don'ts, and tips on how to enhance speaker presence. Humorous TV clips and colorful anecdotes will help exemplify how to build relationships while managing the media. Walk away with a nine-page workbook, and the confidence to be a more effective media spokesperson or coach.
