Catherine Clark Communications will work with you to review the ABC’s of media relations. In one simple, collaborative training session, we will review and tailor the key points you want to make to a media audience, practice delivering those messages in a formal interview-style setting, and critique the results together to assess style, technique, and areas for improvement. Catherine will ensure that you leave the session confident about your ability to deliver a message that is clear, concise and constructive.
