Media Training and Hosting Workshops Los Angeles - Great for Enhancing Confidence and Self Esteem

Media Training Los Angeles 

Public Speaking or getting on stage can be extremely frightening to many people.  The dread of most students is that Speech101 class or Extemporaneous Speaking exercises bring total dread and sometimes can be disabling.  "Stage fright," for some, never goes away.  But are there things we can do to strengthen some basic skills that allow us to be comfortable in our skin when we are faced with those moments of being in the spotlight?

A Media Day can help strengthen people skills, trust, team building, self confidence, decision making and so much more.  But just like being the new kid in school or perhaps your first day of wearing braces, the impact and perhaps the nervousness is a lot greater on the first experience. An experienced speaker, presenter or event host may tell you that after a while, the audience begins to feel like family.  The more "real" a presenter can make the speaking or hosting experience, the more authentic and natural it will become.  Uncertainty or nervousness can lead to lack of clarity and it's why many speakers or presenters fumble over their words or seem
lost in their own content.  A presenter can know the content inside and out but if a strong relationship with the stage hasn't been established or learned, it can affect the overall delivery and outcomes.

Media training and speaking workshops can be as simple or advanced as the classroom attendees allow or feel comfortable with. Basic media day workshop exercises and warm-ups can be as simple

as attendees standing at the back of the room, and each person carrying one item to the front of the room and placing on a podium or lectern (or other target).   Immediately following that simple exercise, the media trainer may shift the structure immediately onto a different exercise or idea rather than staying in a potentially uncomfortable exercise wake.

An impactful media training day should be at least half a day and a full day is ideal because it allows for more exercises and outcome opportunities.  Through the years I've had the pleasure to appear on a number of talk shows, reality shows, news segments, radio spots and other media outlet opportunities.  It's a fast moving train and having some basics when it comes to "arriving on set" can "set" you up for success. 

If you have any questions - I look forward to speaking with you and sharing more with you.  If you're interested in scheduling a media day, let's discuss.
