Scout Training Programs

NEW Communications Professional Development Program

Exceptional communicators are not trained in classrooms, they are developed through practice and a great deal of experience. The most effective communications and media techniques are not found in a chapter of a book, they are learned through trial and error. This program is intended to minimize the cycle of trial and error by sharing examples and providing practical tools, assembled from a nearly twenty-year career working in high pressure, intense media relations and corporate communications.

The training will teach your team how to confidently manage media requests, pitch stories, and effectively prepare, coach and support your spokespeople. While effective for those early in their career in media relations, the program is geared towards communications professionals with a strong foundation in media relations and communications to refine and enhance their skillset and further build credibility with their key stakeholders by applying techniques that will build their personal brand as an executive coach.
