A SAMPLING OF OUR CLIENTS
Many of our clients choose to remain anonymous, so this is a very small sampling of our client list.
“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.”
“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.”
“I couldn’t recommend Lisa Elia enough. Lisa gave me the confidence I needed to break down any blocks and limiting beliefs I had around my pitch delivery and ability to articulate my message and tone. She is an empowering, thoughtful, and astute coach who does her research and has been supporting me in my fundraising efforts for my start-up, TEMPLA. I will continue to work with her as our company grows.”
“I started Lisa Elia’s media training timid and terrified of public speaking. There was a reason I enjoyed my place behind the camera, there was a reason I was most comfortable writing or working inside the one-on-one camaraderie with an editor. But… I knew I had to face the music once my films hit the public.
Lisa held my hand and created a tailor-made program for me. She gave me permission to stumble, and because of that, I was able to witness the steep learning curve in the safe space she created. She not only goes into the nitty-gritty, she gave me the bigger picture. She provided effective tools that are easy to remember and that I continue to use. When it was time to get on stage for the Q&A of my premiere, I actually really enjoyed it. And now when I am invited onto a 2-hr. podcast, it doesn’t phase me. I just say yes.”
“As a first-time entrepreneur, I was overwhelmed by the thought of interviews and media engagements. 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!”
You might recognize Emily from her appearance on Shark Tank. She got a deal!
“I utilized Lisa’s 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.”
“Lisa was fantastic to work with! She helped me learn to speak naturally from a teleprompter, which was no easy task. She was very flexible and easy to work with which made me feel comfortable so I could relax into the process. She also noticed the small details that made all the difference in tweaking my performance and my presentation. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to feel more comfortable in front of a camera.”
“Lisa has helped me in a variety of capacities over the years, and my confidence in my public speaking skills has improved dramatically as a result. From helping me with my LinkedIn profile and getting my resumes and cover letters in tip-top shape to preparing me for job interviews and working through difficult conversations, Lisa is an expert communicator and helps me get my wording just right. Whether you’re working on a pitch presentation or trying to nail your next job interview, Lisa is the perfect person to help you prepare.”
“Once our start-up aired on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, we knew that we would have our fair share of press. My business partners and I felt that we needed help with not only becoming more comfortable in front of the camera, but also in working together during group interviews. Lisa gave us confidence in not only feeling calm, cool, and collected in front of the camera but also in helping us learn how to talk about the company to the press. We conquered the press like pros and Lisa was the one who really helped us do that. We were very lucky to have found her!”
"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!
Lisa not only guided me on being a better speaker and presenter, but she helped me flesh out my signature speech in an 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."
“Lisa has media trained my daughter Beth and me for TV appearances on KTLA 5 Los Angeles and KCAL 9 Los Angeles. Her training was enormously helpful in planning our live demonstrations, during which we wanted to make sure we shared our passion for our organic ice cream products. Lisa helped us craft our message so that we come across clearly and confidently in TV, radio, and print interviews. Our media training experiences with Lisa have also had an effect on how we present our business and ourselves on a daily basis with fun energy, polish and confidence!”
“Lisa is knowledgeable and sophisticated in her field – as well as kind and generous in the sharing of her wealth of understanding. She really knows what it takes to bring one’s creative vision out into the world in ways that can reach and serve the most people – while providing the greatest level of personal fulfillment.
I was privileged recently to receive Lisa’s media training, which was both fun and highly informative. I now have a much better idea of how to express my mystic-linguistic perspective on language through an approach that will resonate with journalists and a wider popular audience. Anyone seeking to make a bigger splash in the world with their own work would be wise turn to Lisa for her outstanding guidance and support – as well as her totally heart-centered approach.”
