How to prepare

1. Please prepare a short two to three minute scripted media presentation.

2. Ask your colleagues to prepare four to five questions that the media might ask you if you were representing your organisation. The questions should be sealed in an envelope so that you can’t see them prior to the training. These questions will be used in media scenarios throughout the course.

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. On day two, participants are asked to bring a professional outfit to change into for different media presentation scenarios. We will also need a current colour head shot to assist our stylist in selecting the right products for hair, makeup and wardrobe.

We welcome you from 8.30 am for tea and coffee. Please make sure to arrive by 8.45 am to ensure a prompt start.

Arrival tea and coffee, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.

What people have said about the course

  • 'I’m so grateful for the excellent work your two tutors did. It’s really given me the gift of the gab! In fact, recently I even gave a presentation for Hack Day in Sydney, a feat of which I’m not sure I could have done, or could have done as well as I did, without the teachings I got from NIDA'
    Media Researcher, Australian Associated Press (AAP)
  • 'I found this to be the most informative and compelling course that I have taken in my professional career. I continue to utilise the skills, as they apply to so many aspects of working life. I felt that I was a confident presenter before the course, but the improvement from the tape created on the first morning, when compared to our final piece on the second day, was extraordinary. I believe that this course is essential training for any executive that represents their company in the media, or in any public forum.'
    Major Donor Relationship Manager, The Smith Family
