Have you ever fumbled your way through an explanation of what you do, why it’s unique and what value you bring to your clients? This high-impact master class gives you the tools to express yourself with clarity and confidence so you can be more effective on the job and in your professional relationships going forward.

With more than 25 years of experience in network television, Tim Braun is uniquely qualified to media train any candidate to be camera-ready. As founder of Braun Production, he combines his skills as a seasoned journalist with a producer’s ear to identify the key characteristics that define each of his clients. By pulling out their most relevant stories, polishing those narratives and utilizing the techniques to best share them, Braun makes sure the message gets delivered, loud and clear.

Everyone can benefit from media training. It makes you focus on the fundamentals of your business: what differentiates it in the market and who your customer is. Often, these basic but crucial points are never effectively conveyed because no one has taken the time to figure them out in the first place. In this workshop, you’ll do just that—through a process that’s valuable, challenging and yes, enjoyable too!

In this class, attendees will learn:

- Prioritize their core content
- Tell stories to connect with their audience
- Use body language to their advantage
- Create active listeners
- Face negatives head on
- Effectively engage remote audiences in the virtual world—including best practices when it comes to lighting, background and eye-line

After this class, attendees will have:

- The tools to tackle any situation—presentations, interviews, panel appearances, social media posts—through communication that is simple, direct, powerful and effective
- Command of their narrative, top-lined by a clear and memorable message that cuts through the noise and sticks

This workshop is conducted through Zoom webinar. All you need to join is reliable internet access and computer speakers with good volume.
