Speed Skilling and Media Training

As part of our on-going commitment to your personal and professional development, we invite you to brush up on your speed skilling and media skills at our personalised training day delivered by a range of experts from social media, television, radio and presentation/ public speaking, who bring with them years of experience in their respective fields.

This training will include topics such as:

SoMe Presence

  • Why is twitter considered the ultimate tool in your social arsenal; it’s power, it’s reach and some basic tips for good housekeeping.
  • Online Style, personal and professional brand. Using Humour and thinking about the tone of comms.
  • Don’t unfriend Facebook: how to use Facebook as a tool.
  • Using online communities.

During these sessions the trainer will look at your online presence and work with you on it. They will also help you start or refine an online community. 


Interviews and Presentation Skills

  • TV and radio: discover how news pieces get made and the questions journalists ask and why.
  • Public speaking: combatting nerves, posture and opening lines. Tricks and tips to use to overcome a mind blank.
  • Scripting: this session will look at how to structure a three minute speech, introduction, content and conclusion.

During these sessions you will be both the interviewee and interviewer with feedback given. You will also have the opportunity to deliver a speech in front of your colleagues for practice.
