The phone rings.. A reporter is calling with unexpected questions. What should you do?
Whether you're launching a new product or defending a controversial decision, expert media training is the best way to prepare.
Former TVNZ presenter and BBC correspondent Greg Ward is New Zealand's leading media coach, training newsmakers for any media or speaking engagement.
It’s difficult to imagine your career taking off if you can't deliver a great pitch or presentation.
Few people are naturally gifted speakers. But with expert guidance, you can reduce nerves and improve your performance.
Greg offers hourly mentoring; PowerPoint critiques, and on-camera rehearsals to prepare you for your next appearance.

"I have done a number of media training workshops and I have to say yours was one of the most interactive and extremely interesting sessions I have experienced."
"Probably the most worthwhile training I have ever done not just because of what it was but because who delivered it. Greg was simply brilliant".
"Greg is inspiring and focused. I learnt more in our half-day session than a 2-day course back in the UK. I would happily recommend Greg”
Media training workshops are lively and entertaining. They include individual mentoring and expert coaching, aimed at improving your confidence and finetuning your delivery.
The benefits of media training go far beyond a typical news interview. Once you learn how to sell your story to a newsroom, you'll be far more engaging - and convincing - in any boardroom or public presentation.
