Communication Training

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

– George Bernard Shaw

Whether it’s the high stakes of communicating during a crisis, getting your spokesperson camera-ready or simply writing a media release, we all need help sometimes.

While Media Savvy specialises in empowering people to put their best foot forward with the media, many of the skills we teach can be applied to almost any situation involving communication.

So if you often find yourself having to answer tricky questions, or need to share good news or bad and don’t know where to start, we have a workshop for you.
