“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!”Madeline Fraser

In addition to the hands-on training, the Media Training Handbook, A Great Interview Every Time, is an instructive tool and valuable resource to revisit routinely–it is the gift that keeps on giving long after the training session concludes. For individuals devoted to improving their ability to communicate effectively on- and off-camera, Expert Media Training™ is an outstanding choice.”Phillip Buchanon
“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. 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.”Chef Eric Crowley

“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
“Few experts combine wisdom, heart and keen strategic insights as well as Lisa Elia. Her live Media Training Class was immensely valuable as she instantly helped me clarify my message and gently suggested where my presentation could be refined. Her depth of experience showed as she was able to meet each participant right where they were, whether they were experienced or not, and helped us each feel comfortable in that most uncomfortable of places: the spotlight.
Lisa is warm, generous and a great listener. So don’t worry if you don’t feel “ready” for personal Media Training: Lisa’s brilliant mind and generous spirit will make you so glad you opened yourself to this learning.”Samantha Bennett
“Lisa’s media training for NCJW/LA was excellent. All attendees reported feeling more confident in their abilities to pitch stories to the media and to conduct media interviews. They learned real and effective tools for media relations and left prepared and ready to take their advocacy to the next level. We hope to have Lisa back for future media trainings here at NCJW/LA.”Maya Paley
“Lisa is amazing! We were feeling so intimidated about promoting our company to the media. We needed to know what we wanted to say and how we wanted to present what we do in a clear and precise way. In just 2 hours, Lisa helped us identify specifically what our core message is for our company and the best way to inform potential clients about what we offer. She got us back on track and feeling confident to move forward!”Dr. Sheri Zander
“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.”Laurel Airica
