Media skills training day for charities and social enterprises

Appearing on television is flattery and fear in equal measure, yet it looks so simple when you see it every night. Smile, sound confident, state your case, and answer the questions. In reality though, when you’re in front of a camera, or an unfamiliar television studio it all becomes that little bit harder.

Date:

Thursday 13th July

Time:

9.30 – 4.30

Venue:

BulliesOut, Ground Floor, 2 Neptune Court,
Vanguard Way, Cardiff CF24 5PJ

Description

Our media training workshops are for 8-10 people per day (maximum). The training is for TV & radio interviews, and includes filming two interviews with each delegate, with the interviews being played back and constructive feedback given.

The sessions are very hands on and intensive, but done in a safe, encouraging, and positive setting.

The training content looks at:

  • How to answer questions
  • How to deliver key messages
  • How to appear on camera

We go through the ‘how’ (or theory) part in detail and then get delegates in front of the camera.

We will work with you to prepare your story for interview, and you will learn techniques so that you, and your message, come across as well as possible.

Lights, Camera, Action

Once we have delivered the theory of how to give a good interview on camera, and looked at some examples (good, bad, and ugly) we recreate the setting for a media appearance.

Feedback from previous workshops

 

The Luminous media training was brilliant, Martin was a great trainer and made everyone feel comfortable and the staff who took part feel that it has given them a lot more confidence to do media interviews.

Martin, from Luminous Media, has been incredibly supportive with our training for our Young Adult Carer Council. He tailored the media training specifically for our young people, who found him engaging and interesting. We would certainly use his services in the future.
