Dealing with the media successfully requires a knowledge that will ensure you can get your message across the way you want to. Trained journalists invariably have a story they want to present, and as an athlete, politician, business leader, campaigner or industry expert you should be aware that their story might not be the same story that you are looking to leave in the minds of your target audience.
Few people find media interviews easy. Communicating a message to the media effectively and consistently requires knowledge beyond just the content of that message. Presentation skills and understanding of the interview processes across varying media sectors, from social media, TV, radio or newspapers is necessary.
