Connolly Communications offers a dynamic media training programs, developed by top political, communications and media professionals.
We have a modern approach to media training, reflecting the rapidly changing media landscape.
The skills we teach are valuable not only in handling media interviews, but will resonate at work and in delivering presentations.
Our classes are tailored specifically to your needs and clients receive handbooks and DVDs of their performance for evaluation.
Master Class: This is one on one coaching, for those already in the spotlight who want to fine tune and polish their media skills. Master class is an intensive 4 hour course, complete with camera crew and lights to prepare you for every eventuality. Whether you’re a CEO, politician, sports star or other public figure, you’ll come out with the skills to face any crisis, always staying “on message” and appearing relaxed and in control.
Executive level: We take classes of 4 to 6 – ideal for executive management teams. The skills you learn will prepare you for the differences between radio, TV and newspaper, as well as live and pre-recorded interviews. You will be tested under camera and lights and also face a “press conference”. The tools you take home will be valuable not just for media interviews, but in addressing your work teams and company stakeholders. This is essential career development.
Media Awareness training: Classes of between 4 and 12. This course is ideal for employees who are unlikely to be a company spokesperson, but need to understand the media, write press releases and recognise positive stories within your organisation. We teach you what’s at stake when media calls, how to sell them a story, how to write a “must read” press release and how to improve the writing in your internal publications.
Presentation coaching: Connolly Communications runs presentation classes for individuals or groups wishing to improve their public speaking, or empower themselves as a communicator at work. We show you how to cut the technical jargon and communicate to a broad audience, how to use body language, how to use a stage, presentation techniques, voice control and techniques to calm nerves and appear in control.
