Will you and your organization appear to be competent, caring and professional?

Or will the TV News Media make you and your organization appear to be incompetent, foolish and unprofessional?

It’s your choice how you wish to be perceived because preparation in advance is your key to successfully handling the media in a crisis situation.

Whether you're responding to an event such as an attack, a mistake or inappropriate or poorly thought out communications from within your organization, the follow-up PR can make or break public perception of your leadership and of your organization.

Preparation and planning are both essential elements of a successful PR campaign after an event

CRISIS MEDIA MANAGEMENT COURSE

CRISIS MEDIA MANAGEMENT COURSE

We examine what creates a crisis, and how it can escalate beyond your control, together with the theory of crisis containment and management.

We perform a critical vulnerability study which determines your current strengths and potential weaknesses.

Once we’ve determined your current media ability, we teach you a particular set of skills which will enable you to handle a hostile media in crisis situations.

Using video, we will then practice, sharpen and hone those skills in role-play interviews which are tailored to situations which you and your organization may face.

We then layer-in strategies and techniques which are unique to Brian Sterling-Vete’s system of Mental Martial Arts.  

Brian Sterling-Vete spent over a decade with BBC TV News and he’s also a world renowned expert at the martial arts, and now he has combined these winning strategies into a system that gives you the advantage in handling a hostile media in a crisis situation.

When Wells Fargo, then the largest bank in the USA, was caught creating fake accounts for their customers, the PR failures were epic:

  • A totally unprepared John Stumpf gets hammered by Elizabeth Warren, US Congress (as well as by the media)
  • Stumpf exacerbated the problem by waxing on about the company's great values of honesty, etc.
  • He then blamed the employees for the problem, thereby totally losing any credibility whatsoever
  • And to top it off, the company gave huge bonuses to the leaders who created this debacle.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

The day-long course is divided into two sections.  First there is the theory and discussion section and second, there are the practical sessions.

You will be coached every step of the way as we add layer upon layer of special tips, techniques and refinements until you’re feeling confident, polished and professional.

There will be several practical exercises of what we call a ‘Crisis Action Plan Exercise’ or ‘CAPE.’  This will cover the reality of developing an action plan, preparing your overall strategy, dealing with door-step VOX scenarios, and handling live press-pack interviews and media statements.

All sessions are recorded and analyzed to enable us to refine your progressive training at every stage.

All courses are tailored to our client’s individual needs and requirements and it is possible to include  up to six delegates per course.  We send out a pre-course analysis document to help us prepare in advance to better serve you and your business needs.
