Client Comments

“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

Director of Marketplace Operations, Soothe.com

“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

Founder and CEO, Tea Drops

"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!”[read more="Read More" less="Read Less"]

“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!”[/read]

Sandy Grigsby

Personal Branding Photographer & Founder, Brio Five

“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!”

Phillip Buchanon

Former NFL Cornerback and Author of New Money Staying Rich

“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 makes everything seem effortless and fun.[read more="Read More" less="Read Less"] 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.”[/read]

Chef Eric Crowley

Chef Eric’s Culinary Classroom

“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!”

Ann Ryan

Founder and President, Beachy Cream

“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.[read more="Read More" less="Read Less"]

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.”[/read]
