Media Training

In the event of a PR crisis it is essential that all possible spokespeople have been professionally media trained. This means each individual will feel confident when interviewed to communicate your key messages and protect your reputation. For hospitals and healthcare businesses this means doctors, directors, owners, experts and other practitioners should all have the appropriate media training to prepare them effectively to communicate on behalf of your institute.
