Learn how to effectively engage with the media

Effectively engaging the media has never been more important. Brands, organisations and business leaders are under extraordinary pressure to rapidly and transparently communicate what they are doing and why.

Every time you talk to a journalist, you have an opportunity to protect and enhance your reputation. The right training and preparation can help you make the most of that opportunity.

Learn with tutorial videos, practice in virtual reality, improve your skills

You’ll learn the fundaments of dealing with the media through our online classes, then practice different situations in immersive virtual reality scenarios, where you’ll be able to test out new approaches, and learn to communicate with poise, clarity and conviction.

How does it work?

When you enroll in our media training course, you will receive:

  • Access to online tutorials through our website
  • An access code to unlock 4 VR training experiences within our app
  • A VR headset, if you require one
Learn through a combination of online courses and VR

An example of how this works: you'll learn about how to answer questions in a TV interview with our online tutorials, then you'll be prompted to put on a VR headset and practice this in our BBC styled studio, where you'll be interviewed by a BBC presenter.
