By Gerard Braud –
It can be very difficult for public relations and media relations professionals to persuade their CEO to schedule a media training class. All excuses are thrown on the table, such as, “it’s too expensive,” or “I have just don’t have the time.” In some cases, your leader may be embarrassed or too proud to take a media training class, thinking their media interview skills are up to par. This week we asked the corporate communications and public relations professionals on social media, “What is your best advice to persuade your executives or CEO to take a media training class?” They have weighed in on our social media pages, explaining what has worked for them or what they would suggest for their colleagues struggling with this task. Please watch the video and comment if you agree with their advice, or comment if you have anything additional to add to the discussion.
