Event description
All spokespeople, whether officer or Member, who deal with media on behalf of the Council are required to have undertaken this media training.

It is delivered by an external provider and will prepare you to manage any interview situation, with support from the Council’s Media Team in the Strategic Communications department. You will learn the skills and be able to practice face to face and ‘down the line’ phone interviews and develop an understanding of how the media works, what they want and how you can work effectively with them to promote your key messages.

Learning outcomes
You will receive a digital copy of your own interview performances and benefit from expert and peer review to help you be a more effective spokesperson. These skills will help you in your work for the Council as well as in your wider personal and professional life.
