In a crisis, journalists will hold the leader of an organisation accountable and expect statements and interviews from them. You can add 1:1 Crisis Media Spokesperson Training for your key spokesperson to any crisis management training package. This can include options to work with voice trainers, camera operators and radio producers approved by Cowiecom so you get the right expert support brought to you.
This training is developed out of Felicity Cowie's experience as a breaking news journalist for BBC and ITV. It will work for you too because the way journalists communicate breaking news is directly transferable to businesses experiencing crisis.
