Learn how to communicate effectively to the media, build trust with the audience and convey your messages clearly.Register Interest
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.
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.
We combine online classes with VR for a unique learning approach. At certain points throughout the course, you'll be prompted to practice what you've learnt in VR.
You’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, slideshows and case studies through our online platform - available to access at any time.
Practice what you learn with VR scenarios specific to this course. Talking to the media is just like any other skill - you need to practice to improve.
Learn online and then practice in VR. This loop occurs multiple times throughout the course and helps you improve more effectively.
Influence your audience with a clear message using our communication insights and immersive media training.
Features in our VR app ensure you’ll be better prepared, including recording speeches and voice analysis.
Practice delivering your message a number of ways in our VR rooms and learn which inspires the audience.
Skills improve the more you practice them. With VR, you can practice in a safe space at your own pace, as often as you need to.
Using the latest voice analysis tech, we can pick up hesitation words, pace of voice and more, to ensure you’re speaking clearly.
Practice as often as you like in our virtual simulations, ensuring you’re ready for any future media interviews.
