When: Thursday, August 10, 2017
Time: 9:15 am - Registration, 9:30 - 11:00 am - Seminar

Where:
Maggiano's Buckhead

Presenter: Debbie Wetherhead, Lecturer, Kennesaw State University and President, Wetherhead Communications

Spokespeople -- and the PR pros who coach them – must thoroughly prepare to appear confident and credible in news stories and segments. Behind the scenes, those of us in communications know that before you put executives in front of a camera or behind the podium with media or influencers, you must set an agenda and develop key messages, to determine what to say and how to say it. This program focuses on interview delivery and control techniques, do’s and don'ts, ways to enhance speaker presence and how to build relationships while managing the media.

In 90 minutes together, you’ll learn strategies and techniques that enable a spokesperson to:

  • Become a more effective communicator
  • Take control of the interview process
  • Sell and differentiate their offering or position
  • Garner more and better media placements

BONUS: Registered participants will leave with a workbook to help coach their constituents.
