She Leads Workshop – Media Bootcamp: smashing your next media interview with Ginger Gorman and Sue White

Do you know that sinking feeling of getting a great media opportunity and then walking away wishing you’d done better? Does the thought of being interviewed by the media send you into a cold sweat? Do you want to learn how to talk about your work in a more effective way?

This fun and hands-on workshop, you will:

  • learn what it’s like to be in the media hot seat
  • be offered tips and tricks for the different media environments
  • get help to hone your message
  • go from a ‘ho-hum’ into ‘here I come!’ media talent.

Over the course of two hours, the workshop will explore a model of theory about how the media operates, cover the types of questions an interviewer will ask and will include a mock interview practice.
