Media Workshops

Your career may depend more on a few minutes talking to a newspaper, radio or television journalist than years of hard work in your office.  Indeed, the very survival of your business may depend on it.  And, on the other hand, if you know how to use the media proactively, it can buy you more positive coverage than any amount of paid advertising.

Jane Rowe will show you practical techniques to get your message across:

  • Learn how journalists work so that you can give them what they need.  This will greatly increase the chance of you being quoted in context.
  • Know how many points to make and how to stucture your answers.
  • Learn how to handle difficult questions.
  • Construct a memorable sound bite.
  • Use your voice and body language effectively.
  • Know your rights if things go wrong.
  • Learn how to control the environment.

Media workshops are conducted in small groups or with individuals.  We thoroughly research all the relevant issues you will confront in the media.  We recommend the use of a camera to allow instant replay and feedback on your performance.  Learn the theory and structures that will help you and then practice the techniques in mock interviews.  You walk away with a personal DVD of your performances.


I have no hesitation in dubbing your session a 'masterful' example of how to combine theory with hands-on explanation of the keys to effective media communication.

Mark Carter

With over two decades as a learning and development professional, building frameworks for blue chip billion-dollar companies and SME's, Mark Carter knows a thing or two about human behaviour. 

He can present on adaptability, productivity, peak performance, culture, talent and sales … anything and everything to do with people. That’s because Mark Carter has dedicated his life to helping people adapt their perspective, make choices and take actions that deliver better results in their lives. 

Author of Add Value, published globally by Wiley in 2020, Mark shares why truly knowing what we value, and why, is the real basis of success.

From a leader and training Manager for Contiki Holidays to working across more than 40 countries, Mark knows how to connect and get the best out of people. He understands that the secret to wealth for every business sits with its key assets, its people. And when he presents, his keynotes do more than engage and entertain, they inspire people to look to the future, to evolve their skills and embrace change. 

Mark’s enthusiasm is infectious. He connects with his audience because he cares about his audience. And he truly wants them to know what he knows, so they can leverage their strengths, manage their weaknesses and be the best person they can be. 
He should be bottled up and drunk daily. You’ll have to settle for a presentation, that is if you’re lucky enough to book him. Because people love him.
