In just 90 minutes you’ll learn the tools and tactics you need to be a more effective spokesperson and to train your executives to shine in the media spotlight. 

Join PR News for this must-attend media training webinar that will show you how to craft sound bites that resonate with your audience; field difficult questions and bridge to your core message; and take control of your nonverbal communications habits. 

Proper media training for your organization’s spokespeople and senior leadership is not an option or a luxury—it’s a must in a media-saturated environment where off-message comments can go viral in a matter of seconds. If you are your organization’s lead spokesperson or you are responsible for media training your top executives, you need to know the latest best practices in crafting and disseminating messages on camera, in print and across social media platforms.
