Media Training

„You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” It's debatable whether this quote originally came from Irish author Oscar Wilde or American comic Will Rogers. But the fact is that it's 100 percent true when it comes to public speaking. First impressions are especially important in TV interviews – you only have a few seconds to make a lasting good impression.

In my individual or group training sessions, you will learn what you need to pay attention to during interviews, what role your clothing, style, and body language play, and how the world of media works behind the scenes. You won't just get abstract knowledge, you'll also have plenty of opportunities to try out and practice what you've learned.

Seminar Goals

You will gain insight into the basic principles of interviewing technique as well as the process of producing television programs, and understand the connections between the two. You will learn the basics of speaking clearly, so you can focus on important points and position your message in 20 seconds during radio or TV interviews. You will learn basic information about body language, which you can use to support your message during interviews.
