Be Prepared To Excel
Most people underestimate the precision and practice that precedes the speeches, interviews and presentations that are the most engaging, effective and seemingly natural.
Knowing a lot about a topic is not the same as being able to verbalize your thoughts about it eloquently and concisely.
Careful thought must go into determining which facts, stories and words of inspiration should be shared, and how, where and when they should be communicated.
Maybe you have this part of your communication handled. If not, we can help you with message development and clarification.
Once your messaging is clarified, it’s time to master your content and polish your delivery.
We will prepare you for the demands and specific requirements to shine in the various media formats, presentation situations or pitching environments you will encounter.
You will leave our training with knowledge, experience practicing for what’s ahead, and elevated communication skills that enable you to consistently deliver clear, memorable content with confidence and magnetism.
For more than 25 years, we have successfully trained clients for interviews with top media outlets, investor pitch meetings, promotional videos and a wide variety of presentations and speeches.
As a Los Angeles-based media training and presentation training firm, most of our clients are in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, but we also travel and provide remote training programs to people throughout the world.
What Our Clients Say
“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.”
"After working with Lisa, I have gained the confidence and awareness to convey my message in a clear way, no matter the setting. She even improved my everyday conversation skills! Lisa listens attentively, will push you to your best, and she's truly a master of her craft. What a game changer!"
“I utilized Lisa’s personal media training for numerous appearances on KTLA 5 and KCAL 9/CBS (for cooking segments), and it was invaluable. I had the confidence to create rapport with four television anchors while talking about a myriad of dishes AND feeding them, all in five minutes. Lisa is so detailed and experienced that the anchors asked the exact questions she worked on with me! I also trained with Lisa to prepare for shooting complex cooking videos for my website. Her incredibly upbeat attitude and gentle manner make everything seem effortless and fun. The way she trains with you is remarkable – she helps you to define yourself, your message, your tone, and present your authentic self to your audience. I think of Lisa as my success coach. I look forward to my sessions with her because I know she is going to make me look fantastic. I highly recommend that you hire Lisa to get you into shape for your next media or corporate appearance. She is a delight to work with and you will be grateful for the outcome. It has made all the difference to me and my brand.”
"If you are looking to set yourself apart from others on stage you must work with Lisa. I can't say enough amazing things about her, she is a life changer. Presenting on stage can be scary, she takes that fear, flips it on its head, and creates a message you will be excited to deliver!”
“When I met Lisa she was being interviewed for a press publication. I was so impressed by her in-depth knowledge and understanding of how to present and be comfortable on stage, not to mention her strategy on public speaking that feels comfortable and unique to you. I immediately asked her to coach me and I received even more than I have ever imagined!
Lisa not only guided me on being a better speaker and presenter, she helped me flesh out my signature speech in such and elegant, organized, and easy-to-understand process. I never imagined I could have such a powerful speech so quickly and easily. I had tried before on my own and felt all over the place, I had even taken online courses to help with this and had nothing to show for it. Lisa made me feel understood, comfortable, and excited about presenting.
The best part is she pointed out all of the little things I do that take away from my on-stage presence. She did this in such a fluid, polite, and compassionate way that I was thrilled. The things she pointed out were very subtle but made a huge difference in my on stage presence. She even explained why I do the things that weren't working, what the audience perceives, how to correct it, and how to avoid it in the future.
If you are looking to set yourself apart from others on stage you must work with Lisa. I can't say enough amazing things about her, she is a life changer. Presenting on stage can be scary, she takes that fear, flips it on its head, and creates a message you will be excited to deliver!”
