Media training agency

At Outwrite we offer training for getting the most of your time with media in order to get your key messages across.

We can offer training for both broadcast media as well as print and digital, with experienced journalists qualified in both. We can prepare you for whatever might be on the horizon by designing a bespoke training programme to suit whatever your needs might be.

We are media training specialists and have a wealth of experience in giving people the skills they need as well as knowing what journalists are looking for when it comes to putting you in front of a camera or microphone.

A number of key spokespeople underwent media training with Outwrite.

It was a thorough programme and contained useful advice and valuable practice. The use of experienced reporters and a news cameraman ensured the TV and radio sessions were high-quality.

We have been able to put our new-found skills to use across the media.

Corporate Communications Manager, Nice-Pak International

Broadcast media interviews are a crucial part of our PR and communications to enhance our reputation. Taking full advantage of such opportunities is of paramount importance.

The media training session helped us understand the key dos and don’ts as well as provided us with vital interview practice.

The instant feedback was really valuable and the knowledge shared by the trainers was very useful.

Our team are now more confident when put in front of the news camera or asked to go on the radio.

Broadcast media training

Being invited to appear on TV or radio to talk about positive news from your organisation offers a fantastic opportunity to gain exposure and boost your profile.  It can, however, also be a scary experience.

From standing in the right place or knowing where to look, to wondering what exactly you should be doing with your hands, it can feel daunting.

Similarly, being asked to talk about a potentially negative story can seem fraught with difficulty, with the fear of saying something potentially damaging looming large.
