In Savvy Leadership Strategies for Women, Malena Cunningham, an Emmy-award winning former television news anchor shares her expertise and gives you insider tips in her chapter Media Training, Pay Now or Pay Later...that will help you "meet the press".
Learn the importance of good media training and find out the 3 things you should always ask:
- Discover the necessity of developing your message
- Position yourself to be an expert the media will call on
- Recognize that not all forms of media are alike and determine how to prepare for each
Here's what some satisfied clients have to say about their media training experience with Malena:
Malena presented an enjoyable, entertaining and exceptionally informative media training session for our physicians, administrators and staff. The interview tips she shared - all gleaned from her years as a TV news reporter - were well-presented and clearly explained. Her presentation provided great interview "how-tos" for our employees who had little or no experience with the news media and also served as valuable reminders to those of us who work with the media on a regular basis. I still use many of her tips when training our resident physicians in media interview technique.

I received occasional training from Strategic Media Relations over the course of three years. Ms. Cunningham's extensive background as a news reporter makes her uniquely qualified to provide media training. She provides realistic and practical insights that only someone who's "been there" would know. As a result of the training she's provided me, I feel as though I'm prepared to interact with the media at any time, whether expected or unexpected. More importantly, her coaching and mentoring have made me far more comfortable not only in dealing with the media, but in communicating with poise and confidence generally.
