Using the Media (Spokespeople) Training
March 9 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
🎤 The media can give us excellent opportunities to speak to a huge audience, but can also be our enemy if we don’t know how to approach it. This interactive and practical training series gives you the tools to make the most of every encounter with the media.
🎤 Designed for anyone in XR who deals or wants to deal with the print and broadcast (radio and TV) media, regardless of your current level of experience.
🎤 This is a six-part training series. There is a commitment to attend all sessions, because learning is cumulative, and because spaces are limited. The course includes understanding how the media works and anticipating what they want from you, to making the most of every type of interview.
🎤 We’ll cover off the cuff interviews during actions, local and community radio, press and TV interviews, dealing with hostile interviewers, and writing effective press releases. The Press Release session, however, is optional for trainees that are already confident about writing press releases.
🎤 There is an optional shorter seventh session for Rebels to plan working together using radio phone-ins.
