Training

Every company needs good media spokespeople to maintain its reputation. Having professionally trained spokespeople can make the difference between a good reputation and a bad one.

Our approach is based entirely on experience and knowing what works and what doesn’t. Whether you want to grow your public profile or if you just want to make sure your key staff are prepared when the media comes knocking Ikin Media has real world experience and corporate expertise to help you.

We work with experienced news camera operators to put our trainees in the most realistic media situation possible. Working with individuals or small groups our training packages cover a number of important areas. We can include as many of these elements as you need in your training package.
