Media Skills Boot Camp
October 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm| $60
Become a more effective communicator through the media. This one-day workshop is designed for anyone who must interact with reporters and bloggers, whether online, in print, on radio or TV. It’s for people working in law enforcement, emergency services, business, government, law, education, non-profits, medicine, sports, academia or any field who want to improve their media skills and ensure their message is heard.
Instructor Mike Nikitas, former news and business anchor at NECN (New England Cable News), brings more than three decades of communications and teaching experience to a friendly, positive presentation. The workshop includes understanding different media and the approaches that work best in each, understanding what reporters look for, developing and sticking to a message, and how to be clear and direct. Participants also will learn how body language, dress and voice can help or hinder their message. Keeping with the Loeb School philosophy of hands-on instruction, participants will engage in mock, videotaped interviews and critiques.
