Why Media Training?

Why media training
You understand the importance of your communications strategy. It’s your job. You’ve put hours, days, weeks, months of hard work into getting it right.

Then one of your spokespeople is interviewed by the media and it all goes wrong. Because the journalist is in control, the interview results in the story that they want, not the story that you want.

At best, it’s a wasted opportunity to get your message across. At worst, your company’s reputation is seriously damaged.

The right training, with experienced journalists and specialist tutors, will give your spokespeople the skills and confidence to take control of any media interview and get your message across.

Why HarveyLeach?

Why HarveyLeach
At HarveyLeach we believe there is no better – or more important – opportunity for getting your message across than the media interview. This is why we put everything into making sure your spokespeople are able to take full advantage of this opportunity.

We make no compromises in providing the highest standards of training available, and have spent years getting the formula right.

We know that the quality of our service is a combined function of the journalistic experience and the training skills of the tutors.

All of our tutors have reached the top of their profession as journalists and now specialise in producing highly skilled and confident spokespeople.

Don’t allow your clothes to score an own-goal on TV

There was a huge amount of action during the Argentina-Holland World Cup semi-final last night; unfortunately it was almost entirely confined to ITV pundit Martin O’Neill’s shirt strobing wildly. The soccer may have been lacklustre, at least compared to the Germany-Brazil … Read More...

Mail Hannah Barnes

Self-Serving Claptrap

This past weekend has seen one of the most glaring examples I’ve seen of how not to do it when trying to communicate with the general public. The Mail on Sunday carried a report about a 58-year old lady, Hannah Barnes, who suspected she was having a heart attack and … Read More...
