The TMT Difference

Comprehensive knowledge of how media work and how to work with the media

  • We understand what it takes to run a business
  • We’ve conducted more than 500 workshops and consulting sessions with over 100 clients.
  • Workshops are designed around the needs of each participant based on:
      1. Their specific role inside the organization
      2. Their available time for training
      3. Their comfort level
      4. Their level of experience dealing with the media
      5. The type of interview(s) they will be doing

Depending on your needs, our training will include:

      1. Media skills built around The Media Trainers® 10 Rules of Interviewing©.
      2. Tough questions preparations focusing on the most difficult inquiries reporters are apt to make.
      3. Message development that gets your team “on message” to avert a crisis, diffuse an issue or promote your company.
      4. Role playing, mock interviews and video clips drawn from our extensive library.
