Thanks for clicking – I hope you enjoy your cuppa!

While you’re sipping away, I guess I’d better explain why I contacted you in the first place.

I do media training for companies like yours – individuals, senior leadership teams, press and comms people.

Contact Mick: Let’s chat about media training

 

The aim of our workshops is to ensure that your company gets your message out to the media in a clear, authoritative and professional way Too often companies hide under the ‘no comment’ banner when there’s negative publicity, making them appear as if they are trying to hide something from the public.

On tv, radio and online we often see spokespeople (including experienced politicians) struggle to handle the media but I always advise my clients never to copy politicians – they work to a completely different agenda.

My experience as a BBC journalist has taught me that burying your head in the sand when there’s a media storm achieves nothing and often makes matters much worse.

Yet with expert training there is no reason why your spokesperson/people shouldn’t come across as first-class communicators and representatives of your brand regardless of the context.

“It can take years to build a successful brand and just a few seconds to destroy it“

Yes, it’s a cliché, but it’s true.

Mickord.com can help you avoid the pitfalls and respond effectively under pressure when the media comes knocking at your door. My media training workshops are intensive sessions designed to take you or your team out of your comfort zone and support you so that you have the knowledge and tools to prepare for and execute a successful interview and protect your brand.

At Mickord.com we conduct our media training in person at our offices or yours or online via Zoom, weekdays or weekends – at your convenience – and definitely NOT at London rates!
