Crisis Management

When a crisis occurs you can duck, wait it out or respond quickly and effectively. Problems arise but too often they become more serious than they have to be because of media mismanagement.

In this era of 24/7 news and second by second updates on the internet, you need a team of news pros who can guide you through the media storm. We have the experience, contacts, judgment and quick response skills to help you manage the crisis and emerge strong and intact.

Media Training

MediaPros 24/7 have spent decades asking the tough questions. Now we are using that experience to help you answer the tough questions more effectively.

News Networks

Media training is no longer a luxury. It is a necessity when navigating this new media world. Today a simple blunder to a TV reporter can haunt you forever on YouTube. An innocent aside to a print reporter doesn't go away thanks to Google.

Talking to the media can be risky business but if you are prepared, have good presentation skills and stay on message, the rewards are great.

Our Perfect Pitch Seminars™ prepare you for television, radio and print interviews. We offer large group training sessions, smaller workshops and private individual sessions. We advise on both content and presentation. We do mock interviews that we videotape and review with you. We research your issues and promise our practice interviews will be tougher than what you will face when you do it for real.

When doing TV interviews, you have at best 15 seconds to make your point. We help make your message soundbite friendly and give you transitional tools that help you stay on message and deflect questions you don't want to answer.

We also teach you how the media operates and what reporters, editors and producers are looking for when they do interviews. Understanding the news cycles, deadlines and outlook of the news organizations is key to managing the media effectively.

Our services can include providing makeup artists trained in HD TV and advice on wardrobe as well.

Whether you are a CEO, politician, entertainer, athlete or attorney, our media training will give you the skills and confidence to be a real media pro yourself.
