Our Media training works
Don’t just take it from us – here’s what some our clients have to say
“I’m pretty experienced at working with the media and doing stuff on camera so I wasn’t sure how much I’d actually learn when Aston Martin Racing said that Louise would be doing some training with the team’s pro drivers. The answer was, quite a lot. She gave us some good tips and pointers and opened up my eyes to a few things that I’d never thought about before. It was bloody good even though we were a tough crowd!”
Aston Martin racing driver
“Louise has been a trusted source of media training support for SQN and our clients over many years. Instilling confidence and effective communication skills in spokespeople is of paramount importance when delivering PR campaigns. It doesn’t matter whether you are a novice or an experienced speaker, Louise’s approach covers all bases. When we need media and presentation training, Louise is our first port of call. Our clients have always come away emboldened, ready to embrace whatever media requests we send their way.”
Client Services Director
“We wanted to build confidence in our senior management team and give them the skills they need to handle a range of different interview situations. After some training with Louise we all now have a much better ability to drive the content and tone of our messaging in the right direction and an understanding of how to establish and maintain constructive relationships with the media. What’s more she made it really fun and enjoyable, a great day!”
“We approached Goodman Media to provide media training for our clients, two young directors of a new business start-up with no prior experience or knowledge of being interviewed, before the media launch of their company. The programme that Louise put together fitted the brief perfectly, was memorable and the management team were well prepared and confident in all the varied press environments they subsequently encountered.”
“I’ve never been very comfortable doing media interviews but it’s an important part of my work so doing some training with Louise seemed like a good step to take. She and her cameraman came to my offices, both in London and abroad, and we worked through a lot of exercises and interviews. This has really helped me to understand how the media work and what they are looking for so I’m much more comfortable in front of journalist and TV cameras now. More importantly though I also know how to deliver the messages that I want to get across for my business in the right way and to make that all important connection with audiences. Louise’s training has made a big difference for me”.
Founder & CEO
“We need to be sure that everyone who’s representing the Honda brand is doing so in the best way possible so we’ve put some of our management teams, as well as drivers and riders, through training with Goodman Media. Louise put together different programmes to reflect their varied needs and job requirements and the feedback we had from all the participants afterwards was very positive”.
