Whether it’s corporate communication, a presentation, interview or crisis management, it all comes down to experience, preparation and practice. And that’s just what BAE Executive Media Training delivers.
“Crisis” is a scary word. The reality is that organizations must plan for every possible crisis scenario. The time to make decisions about what to say and who should say it is before the crisis strikes. BAE Executive Media Training works closely with companies and organizations to discern vulnerabilities and prepare you and your spokespersons to define key messages and protocols for every situation.
Media training is a process that prepares executives to act as company spokespersons. This can mean training executives for their first media interview, or working with senior officers to refine messages and interview techniques for specific situations. It all comes down to preparation, practice and understanding the principles of effective communication. BAE Executive Media Training works closely with clients to develop and define key messages. Our media training sessions include a series of rigorous on-camera interviews and critiques to make sure clients are prepared for any media situation.
Presentations and public speaking are often the highest pressure situations executives face. But these are also valuable opportunities that can define one’s career. Being trained, prepared and having the right message is critical. Once the message is perfected and the spokesperson is prepared, confidence grows. Whether for analyst tours, client presentations, employee briefings or other audiences, we help spokespersons craft engaging presentations, and teach them how to deliver a compelling message.

We assume the role of media coach to make sure clients are prepared to deal with all facets of media interaction. We make certain they deliver the right messages at the right time, and in the right manner. Our process starts by defining the principles of effective communication, refining core messages and honing the delivery of those messages for any audience. We say “any audience” because that’s what we mean by media.

From media training 101 and crisis communications, to public speaking, interview preparation and presentations, our experienced media training team prepares clients through proven techniques, preparation and practice. We provide one-on-one media and public speaking training, and we also lead media training classes and tutorials.
Our staff includes award-winning journalists who are former anchors and reporters for major market television and radio stations. BAE Executive Media Training has not only trained hundreds of corporate spokespersons—we have also been the corporate spokesperson. This real-world experience is invaluable when it comes to coaching your spokespersons for any media or crisis situation.
Agencies and corporate communications professionals deal with the same topics and executives every day. While this is an effective way to understand the complexities and nuances of your business, it also makes it difficult to have a fresh perspective. We evaluate situations objectively and let clients know which of their spokespersons are best prepared to handle media interviews.
When it comes to media training and preparing executives for crisis situations, there is the choice between large agencies or individual counselors. BAE Executive Media Training offers the best of both worlds. Because our staff and network of associates have such a diverse background in media training and crisis management, we deliver the experience of a large agency along with the personal attention and price you expect from an individual media counselor.
