Media Training

In this 21st century multi-media world, the need to improve your communications skills to create positive media interest and gain public support for your message or cause is more important than ever.

Whether your audience is a national, international, local, or specialist, you can learn how to put your story and key points across in a way that:

  • sets the media agenda
  • positively promotes your organisation
  • improves relations with your supporters and stakeholders.Studio 1

Whether you work in the non-profit, corporate, public or private sectors, there are times when the invaluable skills of knowing how to confidently present your key messages, how to prevent being ambushed in news interviews, or how to deflect tough, or tricky questions really matter.

Goodwork’s Media Training workshops show you how to achieve these essential techniques with preparation and practise:

We run short, one-day media training courses with a strong emphasis on “learning by doing” and practical exercises. We design coaching sessions customised to your specific requirements and relevant work practices.

Our training supports anyone working at a local, national, or international level for non-profit organisations, NGOs, Social Enterprises, the NHS, Parliament, or businesses who want to start a new media campaign. Whether you’re a CEO with a major event on the horizon, a company spokesperson, an experienced media officer wanting to update your skills, a project manager, financial expert, fund-raiser, artist, our workshops can help you make the maximum impact.

Studio 4We can run your media training workshop from a state-of-the-art studio venue in central London, at our own premises in Chiswick Town Hall, or we can train you in your own workplace, using our cameras and equipment.
