Media Training

Media Training
Our former BBC News presenter can help you prepare for the toughest interviews, in print or on screen

A confident interview performance takes preparation and skill. We at PLMR have the experience to show you how it’s done.

Former BBC journalist Mike Ramsden will lead you through your bespoke training plan, full of real-world techniques and illustrative examples. He’s interviewed thousands of people on radio and television in his 20-year career, and can show you the tricks journalists use to get the result they want. Our training team will explain how to avoid those pitfalls, and deliver the message you want. Practical sessions, featuring different interview scenarios, will make your media performances polished.

You’ll get the chance to be interviewed on camera, in a safe, controlled environment. You’ll get feedback on your performance from experts in media relations and public affairs. We’ll show you how to steer a course through tough questioning, giving you the tools to take control of the discussion.

PLMR’s media training will…

  • help you create memorable messages that tell your story
  • explain the techniques that help you deliver those messages successfully
  • prepare you for all eventualities, from breakfast TV sofa to live questioning in the middle of a crisis

We can train you for live and pre-recorded broadcast interviews, on location or in the studio. We’ll explain the different deadlines and content demands of print, radio, TV and social media. We can give you advice on how to tweet, update and blog. All with the aim of your delivering what you want to say, through a confident, polished performance.

Feedback we have received from clients includes:
