So you have landed the interview or you have been booked for a media panel, now what? This workshop will offer up skills and tips on how to prepare for a print, radio or TV interview, how to deal with challenging interview questions, and techniques to make sure your key messages are delivered. Participants will get hands-on practice and take away tools that will help them prepare for and leverage media opportunities.
