Communications training

Whether you need individual coaching, team and leadership development, or specific communication skills training, The Academy can support you.

The Academy provides tailored, bespoke training and development interventions to address specific goals and learning outcomes.

These are highly interactive, with immediate impact that enable people to put into practice what they have learned in a very practical, straightforward way.

Media Training and Presentation skills lie at the heart of what we do. Media Training Director Sukhi Hayer explains more:

“We’ve helped media train clients from across a broad spectrum of industries and our experienced journalists will guide you through the quagmire of dealing with reporters and journalists, to deliver effective, impactful interviews with impressive results.

“We have a range of courses to help those who’ve never encountered a journalist; to seasoned campaigners who need a quick brush up before going in front of the media.

“We bring industry standard equipment to recreate the media experience in your offices, or source state of the art studios, including the London Stock Exchange and Millbank. Training includes a minimum of two simulations to test you in a wide variety of situations and to offer different interview techniques.”

Training options can include:

  • Interview with hostile guest
  • Radio phone-in
  • Soundbite recording
  • Print/Online interviews
  • Live DTL (Down The Line)
  • TV Pre-records
  • News Conference
  • Crisis simulations

In addition we can provide training around any specific area you or your team need to develop: from influencing skills, to digital and social media skills, strategic planning or change communications.

The training team is run by Managing Director Andrew Holland. Contact andrew@commsleaders.co.uk to discuss your requirements in more detail.
