Lisa Elia, Founder of Expert Media Training™
Media Trainer, Presentation Trainer, Pitch Coach and Speaker
“Individuality is important: it won’t serve you well to sound like everyone else. I draw out of clients the most meaningful messages they want to convey and work with them to achieve their most engaging delivery. When you hire a media or presentation trainer, you’re essentially hiring the trainer’s influences, background, and ability to put the pieces of the puzzle together and foresee consequences. I’m grateful that my formal education and real-world experience have positioned me to do the work that I do.” — Lisa Elia
Lisa Elia is a media trainer, presentation trainer and pitch coach who works with CEOs, subject matter experts, entrepreneurs, doctors, attorneys, athletes, actors, music artists, authors, attorneys, chefs and other public figures. She is known to many who have seen her sharing her expertise on Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, E! Entertainment, FoxNews.com or in Inc. or numerous other media outlets.
Lisa built her brand as a media trainer and PR expert through the successes she created for clients, taking those who were unknown or who had very little prior press coverage, and catapulting them into the national spotlight with appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, CNN and other top national TV shows, as well as print and radio interviews with Clear Channel Radio, USA Today, People, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, and hundreds of other outlets.
After more than 20 years of providing media training as well as full-service public relations services through her company Lisa Elia Public Relations, Lisa shifted her focus solely to media training, presentation training and pitch coaching. Publicists who represent her media training clients appreciate Lisa’s ability to see their perspective and to provide strategic media training and presentation training that serves the clients’ greater goals.
From an early point in her career, Lisa’s clients turned to her for business advice and strategies that extended far beyond those provided by a media trainer or PR professional. She sharpened her skills as a business strategist and tapped into her ability to make high-level connections between people and concepts, which she had developed as a publicist. For her clients, she facilitated high-level product distribution deals, co-branded promotional ventures, national and international charity alignments, and other game-changing initiatives.
This focus on strategy and creating messaging to serve both short- and long-term goals is an important part of the media training and presentation training that Lisa and our team provide.
