When preparing for media interviews, presentations or pitches, a customized training program will serve you best. While there are some training techniques that are effective with most people, your specific goals, needs and thought processes should influence the media training and presentation training you receive, which is why the recommendations and training we provide are specific to you.
Our Founder and Lead Trainer Lisa Elia brings more than 20 years of experience to her training, facilitating dramatic transformations in clients' communications. She prepares clients to excel in media interviews, public speeches, investor pitches, panels, and other situations that require magnetism and polished, effective communication skills
When we begin working with a new client, we gain a clear understanding of your goals, brand and key messages and train you based on what will be most effective for you. This is true even when working with multiple individuals from the same organization. People don’t all think or learn the same way, so why would our training be the same for everyone? With an understanding of how vulnerable even the most accomplished people can feel during the media training/presentation training process, our approach is gentle and positive, yet challenges clients to become the most effective and magnetic interviewees or presenters they can be.
Clients are often surprised by how much and how quickly their communication is elevated through our training process. The benefits of our training affect many areas of our clients’ lives that extend far beyond the moments in the spotlight, improving their effectiveness when communicating with their team members, clients and others. Our clients emerge from the training with greater confidence, clarity and the ability to communicate naturally and with charisma.
“Lisa Elia at Expert Media training has been instrumental in preparing our leadership team to tackle interviews across all mediums (live TV broadcasts, recorded TV, print and digital media). Her friendly, but firm, training has helped to reshape the way we think about speaking to journalists – focusing on clear, concise answers to the journalist’s line of questioning as well as how to get our core message out to consumers even when not prompted to do so. The best part is once training is complete, Lisa doesn’t just leave you hanging. There is always opportunity for further follow up and analysis to continue to improve our PR and media efforts.”Jeff Bishop
“Lisa is an all-star pitch coach! She is incredibly thorough when it comes to giving feedback to enhance your presentation and spares no detail. I specifically appreciate how she’ll take the time to comb through your content and take the seat of the audience to ensure no stone is left unturned in your pitch. She is a very calming presence which puts you at ease, and is extremely generous with her time and expertise. She truly wants the best for her clients and is the consummate professional in her field.”Sashee Chandran
