Media & presentation training
Try delivering a message that’s clear, persuasive, and articulate when the TV cameras are rolling. It’s not easy.
You’ve got to be enthusiastic, but not scattered; knowledgeable, but not jargon-heavy; persuasive, but not “salesy.” And you’ve got to be able to do it on any stage—whether it’s an actual campaign stage, a phone call with a reporter, or a live interview on CTV. The best spokespersons achieve success through preparation and practice.
PUNCH helps clients to be at their best in media interviews and presentations. As a Toronto media training and presentation training firm, we have more than 25 years of experience preparing clients for media interviews. Our training is lead by experienced former editors and journalists who know how the media works.
We also provide presentation training, coaching clients to deliver effective and compelling presentations from the stage or in pitch meetings.
