What distinguishes MediaWorks from traditional media training companies?

MediaWorks is a boutique communications training firm that coaches executives on gaining the expertise and self-assurance to convey their messages powerfully, leading to successful brand and reputation management with stakeholders. We are the communications trainer of choice among both Fortune 500 and emerging company C-suiters, called upon to prepare executives for their highest-stakes communications needs.

Against a backdrop of a dramatically changing media world, MediaWorks gives executives a command of communications – every time, in every situation. Executives trained with our proprietary, immersion methodology quickly and effectively develop the talent – and techniques – of the communication masters of our time. Unlike other trainers, we don’t bore executives with jargon-ridden lectures or condescending slide shows. Instead, we put them in hyper-realistic scenarios to develop critical messaging skills, and record these drills for real-time feedback and critique.

We are large enough to have a time-tested command of the industry, but small enough to provide our clients with uncommon responsiveness. Some of our most loyal clients came to MediaWorks following less successful experiences with traditional consultants.

Is the MediaWorks training method appropriate for new media and non-media communication?

Absolutely. Our innovative, reality-based training approach is perfectly suited for social media, direct-to-camera client-created content, and general messaging strategy. Clients come to us for coaching on analyst briefings, congressional testimony, customer relations strategies, and commencement speeches. In short, we help our clients create and deliver ideal messages to any audience under any circumstance.

Where do you conduct your training sessions?

MediaWorks’ offices are conveniently located a few blocks from the ocean in the Venice area of Los Angeles. Clients wishing to escape the distractions of their own offices are invited to attend training here.

If it is more convenient, we are happy to come to you. We serve clients in San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and just about every other major city in the world.

Do you offer private instruction or group sessions?

Both. We train individuals, and groups ranging from 2 to 200. However, because effective media training often involves the disclosure of proprietary client information, we do not offer public classes or pre-scheduled seminars. Every training session is client centric and highly customized.

What kind of follow-up do you offer clients?

On-site communications training shouldn’t be a “hit and run” proposition. We offer a year’s worth of follow-up support after the training is over. Among other things, that means clients may submit clips of their post-training interviews and presentations for feedback and ongoing skill development.

What about your rates?

Our rates are highly competitive. In some cases, we are able to offer a special introductory fee structure for new clients. Ask about these rates when you contact us.

How far in advance should I book my training?

Although we always try to accommodate last-minute requests, we recommend booking 4 to 6 weeks in advance for optimum availability. In order to simplify the scheduling process, we provide new clients online access to our booking calendar, which offers immediate and ongoing verification of our availability.
