From message to delivery, you need a smart strategy to tell your story to the audience you want to reach. Media Training for the 21st Century is a general communications training for organizers, staff, and principals that leaves you feeling empowered and able to get your message across regardless of fear and distraction. This goes way beyond style tips for television hits—this is about communicating your values in a way that resonates long after you’re done speaking.
This training is open to everyone.
