Preparing for a Media Presentation/ Interview: What Nobody Ever Tells You
Speaker: Shannon Young
If there’s one thing people are afraid of it’s public speaking, whether in front of a live audience or a camera. But if you’re an independent business owner your goal is to get your product or service in front of as many people as possible, one on one or through the media.
So, how do you deliver your message in such a way that your audience remembers you and your business in a positive light? We’ll discuss ways to get the media’s attention, prepare for and deliver an interview, and feel good about it afterwards. Also, if you're thinking about developing your own video for social media, we'll talk about ways to be an effective on-camera "talent."
