We are a media consultancy company, bringing unrivalled practical knowledge of media, in print and broadcast. We bring that knowledge to our work with clients on media strategies, planning and content.
We provide practical media training for broadcast media interviews, for individuals, and small groups, sharing our extensive knowledge and understanding of news generation, how journalists work, for live, pre-recorded and crisis situations.
Our clients include representative organisations, media spokespersons for campaigns, PR companies, training managers, and SMEs. We work with designated spokespersons, with non-journalists and with individuals who want to practice their media interview skills with a professional journalist before they go “live”.
It’s all about preparation, practice and confidence. With the right preparation, and plenty of practice, confidence grows with each media interview.
It’s also about planning. Working on key messages, target audiences, and planning outcomes.
Our popular Smartphone Video Workshops are run bi-monthly here in our Blackrock offices, and in Dublin City Centre.
We also run bespoke workshops on demand for groups of four or more, at clients’ workplaces and around the country.
Our online version of the Workshop is being launched on March 19th next. Go to www.videotraining.ie/ecourses for more.
And we do one-to-one training in smartphone video, podcasting and media interview preparation.
And do subscribe to our new dedicated video training YouTube channel – VideoTraining TV – for free tips, advice and reviews.
We specialise in “dry run” media interviews in radio, TV and print scenarios, recorded and played back in workshop-style training.
We work on Key Messages with clients, help clarify issues, get the language right, and bring confidence through practice.
We work with communications professionals, spokespersons for companies, senior executives and more.
We create a simple radio or TV studio set up, or hire the real thing if required. Full recordings supplied.
Need to make a video presentation? Are you doing regular live Hangouts on video? Do you need to know how to present to a camera? How do you use an autocue?
We are experienced TV journalists and presenters, bringing wide practical experience and insights to teach the skill of talking to a camera in a natural but effective way.
We run bespoke training workshops on request.
In a half-day workshop, we help you set up and manage your own YouTube channel for your business. You go away with a fully set up channel, including logos, and content, and more:
As professional radio producers and podcasters (see our “Voices of the Rising” series for The National Library of Ireland and our own “Clarence Street Stories” on this website), we can see the power of podcasting to tell stories.
In this half-day workshop, we teach you how to make your own podcast -whether you record on a laptop, a phone or a digital recorder.
