Increasingly, it is not only PR and communications experts who are required to speak with the media but also employees in a wide variety of technical and specialist roles. Media exposure can provide excellent opportunities to publicise your organisation and portray your work in a positive light. However, getting it wrong can be incredibly damaging and poor media coverage can take years to repair. Whether you are talking to a journalist over the phone, speaking at a press conference or giving a recorded TV interview, DCM Learning can help you to maximise these opportunities.

Media Skills will enable you to develop your communication skills and give you the additional skills to deliver clear and succinct messages under pressure. This highly practical course will build your confidence and help you to expand your skill set so that you are equipped to deliver effective and successful media interviews.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
