Media training is more important than ever.

Flexible Media Training Workshops
On Demand at Your Location
Our media training workshops can be structured as brief one-on-one sessions to help C-level executives practice, small group half-day or full-day sessions, and classroom sessions for up to 200 people. We have trained the full spectrum of spokespersons, from children to CEOs of some of America's most respected organizations.
We break each PR media training workshop into three parts:
The Basics - We cover the fundamentals, including the rules of engagement between spokesperson and journalist, the power of nonverbal communication and the role of citizen journalists in setting the agenda for 21st century storytelling.
Messages - We tap into what spokespersons are passionate about so your ideas are communicated with excitment and authenticity.
- Bridging - We provide tips and techniques so your spokespeople can tactfully move from topics they don't want to focus on back to their "happy place" without coming across as evasive.

What Media Training Participants Tell Us
“I thoroughly appreciated the media training session, and as painful as it was to look at – the camera recordings. It’s important to recognize and call out your physical ticks and traits as well as understand how you come across to others (vs. how we perceive ouselves coming across to others). The workshop was extremely helpful in identifying key methodologies, tips, and tricks to getting your message across, the mock interviews and video recordings were extremely helpful in objectively identifying response patterns, and areas for improvement and focus.”
David S., Digital Health Company
"The training program DPK Public Relations put together for our people was well-received, insightful and useful. The key take away for folks (most with no experience working with the media) was that preparation and sticking to your key messages are of paramount importance. I highly recommend DPK PR for organizations large and small.”
Joe Harwood, Eugene Water & Electric Board
"I am glad I attended such an awesome training session and it was valuable experience gained. Your expertise and unique training has broadened my skill set when it comes to media interviews and has given me the necessary tools to focus on delivering a powerful message. Everything you taught from using repetitive key words to posture to taking control of the interview will yield success in my future interviews, in my opinion and I can’t thank you enough for sharing your expertise."
John R., Bell Helicopter
"I do believe your training has become one of the most valuable communication tools I now have in my PR/Communications toolbox! All of the attendees I spoke with were very complimentary, as well."
Jennifer D., Kennewick Irrigation District
“I know HR has a system for feedback, but I just wanted to let you know that I have had multiple people come find me to comment on how valuable these last sessions were. A couple even said it was the most valuable training they’ve taken. They’re excited to see their on-camera work and practice some more."
Kylie C., NASA Johnson Space Center
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for what was such a productive and positive day. The team all fed back how great the day was. It was not only insightful but your knowledge around (our industry) and key issues was great to add in and brought the scenarios to life."
Chloe C., Carlson Wagonlit Travel
