Course Summary

 

Public Affairs: Speak Effectively at Press Conferences

 

 

Imagine yourself speaking at a press conference with total confidence, and the media are there in full force capturing your messages and using your favorite sound bites. Wouldn't it be great to know that regardless of the questions asked, you can get your message across and the exact quotes you want in the final story.

 

In this How to Speak at a Press Conference course, you will learn the following:

 

   How to look and sound your best on TV

   How to craft a statement as well as a media message

   How to answer reporters' questions strategically

   How to create and deliver sound bites

   How to get the exact quotes you wanted in the final story

 

This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.

 

The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watch yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.

 

This course contains numerous video lectures plus several bonus books for your training library.

 

TJ Walker has been coaching and training people on their presentation skills for 30 years. You can now receive the training at a tiny fraction of the normal fee for in-person training.

 

How long this course takes is up to you. The longest part of the course involves you speaking on video, critiquing yourself, and doing it over until you like it. But if you get to the point where you love how you look and sound when you present, it will be well worth the time spent. And having this skill will save you time for all future media presentations in your life.

 

You can begin improving your media presentation skills right now. You may have an opportunity to speak out as soon as tomorrow, so why waste another day worried that your media presentation skills are not up to high standards. Enroll in this course today.
