One of the first things I do with any of my agency’s new clients is to put them through media training because it’s crucial to be ready to go before you put yourself in the public eye.
Here’s a video that gives you a few quick tips, but there’s much more to it than this, which is why I have a public Media Training Class scheduled for May 31. More details are provided below.
Usually, my media training programs are private, but I’ve had some requests for an affordable, group class, so I’ve planned one for May 31, in West Los Angeles. For those of you who are too far away to attend, I have other options for you.
Here’s the information about the Media Training Class on May 31.
This class is limited to 10 participants.
Date: Friday, May 31, 2013
Time: 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm
Location: 11620 Wilshire Boulevard, 9th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90025
You will receive:

- on-camera practice interview drills with Lisa;
- PDF of “A Great Interview Every Time: Media Interview Handbook” by Lisa Elia;
- and access to Lisa’s insightful video interviews with members of major media outlets, who share their likes, dislikes and what they look for in guests for radio and TV interviews and subjects for print interviews.
This class is offered to you at the affordable price of $250.
If you can’t get to Los Angeles, or you prefer a private training program, I have two other options for you:
As you put yourself further into the public eye, remember this: it’s important to be yourself, but show the world your best self.
