If you work for a corporation, you know that handling the news media poorly can lead to bad publicity, a crippled brand, and public misperceptions about your work and what you stand for. But managing the media effectively can garner publicity that’s both timely and positive, and can catapult your brand from anonymity to a distinct, popular position in the marketplace.

This two-day course focuses on how to handle media interviews – the most basic and most important interaction you’ll have with the media. Interviews are the bedrock of news reporting, and thus it’s important to handle them with poise and skill.
