    Crisis Communications Workshop Participants
  • "One of the best media training firms I've worked with is Media in English. They're firm, clear and tough, without being disrespectful. They do their research and help companies craft the image they want to project. We hired them to train clients of ours who were arrogant and didn't understand why they needed media training at all, claiming 'we know how to talk to the media!' By the end of one day of work with Media in English, these guys understood the benefits of preparation before interviews - a priceless improvement!"

  • “I had a journalist here for the day from Esquire doing a piece on the launch of a luxury brand.  He interviewed 4 members of the exec team individually on different areas.  I sat in on all the interviews.  Each member of the team gave out the same messages.  The journalist, being a journalist, repeated some of his questions.  But got the same answers whoever he asked.  I felt very proud.  And so should you.  Thank you!”

    CEO
  • "The training was excellent.  I very much liked the personal interaction and coaching."

    Peter Cléber
    Managing Director
  • "We received very valuable advice on the small details that make or kill a presentation. Most presentation courses focus exclusively on the message but this is something that most managers have already learned in college or from other presentation training sessions. Rudi and his team are refreshingly different. They dare to be honest with you but remain supportive and encouraging at the same time. Comes highly recommended."
