Here is what satisfied clients say about our media training:
"Attending taught me how to appear more relaxed in front of the camera and craft my message in sound bites. I have already seen a huge difference in recently taped interviews.” –Diana Jennings, Founder, "Brand You Image"

“I always avoided the media because I felt that I looked awkward in front of a camera and didn't like how my voice sounded. Suzanne Spurgeon's media training services, which blended humor, rigorous honesty, and her vast knowledge of the most effective ways to present to the media, helped me solve these problems. Now I look forward to on camera interviews, instead of dreading them.” –Robert Jonez, Realtor & Author “Asphalt Boogie”

  • After you’ve taped a TV interview, you decide you want some of it "off the record.” Is that do-able?
  • What is the worst thing to say to a reporter?

We respect your privacy.
