Media and Presentations Skills Training and Message Development
To be successful, executives and professionals need to acquire a broad range of skills. And for almost all professionals, effective communication is an essential leadership skill. Good communicators inevitably rise to the top.
We provide our clients with the tools to take their speaking skills to the next level. Our highly interactive programs simplify the essentials of good public speaking: content, delivery, visuals and Q&A.
Lead by veteran news reporter and public speaking expert, Brian Callaghan, we conduct small group and individual media training sessions to help our clients polish their delivery skills and develop effective messages and sound bites. We also pitch our clients as reliable sources to selected reporters, news editors and assignment managers by providing them with high quality, pre-produced interviews that demonstrate our clients’ knowledge and expertise.
In addition, we teach clients how to communicate more effectively in a variety of settings. Our intensive, video-recorded sessions enable them to quickly identify and build upon their strengths, eliminate distracting tendencies and, through frequent replay, witness their own rapid improvement. Following these sessions, clients continue to make significant progress by practicing a few simple skills.
Social Media Strategy Development
New technology has spawned an array of new media, especially on the Internet, where news and information outlets on every conceivable topic are multiplying daily. This development has created new opportunities for marketing and promotion. However, one of the biggest mistakes many companies make is placing content on the internet hoping someone will eventually stumble upon it.
Effective Social Media strategy is an essential part of any marketing plan. We develop the right social media plan to help your business use the new and developing social networks to best engage customers and employees. Approached selectively and strategically, social media outreach can yield tangible benefits. Favorable social media interaction amounts to free word of mouth advertising for the company. Plus, secondary market usage of traditional news coverage, targeted to specific audiences within the social media space, can exponentially enhance the impact and extend the life of a favorable news event far beyond the original first run exposure.
Our Social Media producer, Brigette Polmar (of Brand Spoken Communications) has decades of experience as a public relations, messaging and branding expert. Our Director of Photography and Head of Operations, Darnley R. Hodge Jr, has studied social media strategy at the university graduate level and has developed Social Media strategies for several video projects. Through combined expertise, Imagination Media remains on the cutting edge of developments in social technology and has helped numerous clients enhance their online presence and strengthen their brand by developing forward thinking Social Media strategies for various projects.
