#54 Handling Media Interviews Like a Pro
We’d all like to be more comfortable and prepared to excel in media interviews whether video, audio, or print. Surprisingly, the only thing that separates the experts from you is a basic understanding of media principles, knowing what interviewers’/ reporters’ techniques and goals are, and understanding how to maximize your own God-given talents.—and, a little bit of practice and encouragement. This workshop will provide both of these ingredients. You will leave empowered with basic principles as to how to work with the media effectively, skills to assure successful interviews, and practical wisdom to excel—even in crisis situations.
