Online Media Training

Remote Media Training from Your Laptop. High quality, bespoke, using the best of existing technology.

As we adapt to this new world, video conferencing is providing a useful tool for everything from meetings, TV interviews and of course, training.

The good news is that this software can be really effective for media training. We have been experimenting with different platforms and believe we have a solution that allows us to deliver bespoke group and one-to-one training complete with the recording and analysis of interviews.

The software allows for a fully interactive session with video and audio, shared screens, seamless recording and playback, white board, break out rooms, polls and private and group chats.

It’s not the same as training in person but it’s a very good option.

Our training, as with face-to-face sessions, is for a maximum of six delegates at a time. Although more is possible from a technological point of view, we don’t want to lose the personal and interactive feel to the sessions. Since attention spans are shorter online, we recommend two 90 minutes sessions with a break in the middle.

To avoid any technical hitches, we carry out our training as a double-header with our technology adviser ensuring the smooth flow of the session recording and uploading interviews during the session.

Our sessions will offer you:

  • Detailed preparation with bespoke scenarios and questions
  • Theory pitched to your level and experience
  • Video examples of good and bad practice
  • Interactive messaging sessions
  • Realistic and individually tailored print, radio and TV interviews
  • Individual feedback
  • Videos of interviews sent to you securely
  • Free telephone advice available post training.

Advantages of remote training:

  • Approximately half the cost of face-to-face training
  • No geographical barriers
  • Shorter sessions easier to fit into busy diaries.
