Media Interview Gone Wrong

A good reminder of how not to do a media interview.

 

Mishap by Education Secretary Gillian Keegan here as she forgot that an interview starts the moment you enter the room and ends the moment you leave.

 

Even if you are not mic'd the presenter's mic or top mic on the camera may pick you up.

 

So a good reminder to anyone doing any sort of media interview...

Presentation Skills Training – Dealing with Nerves  

Dealing with nerves when it comes to presentation skills can be something we all can suffer with.  So here are 5 tips to help you deal with nerves. 

1 – Chat to your friend.  Don’t present to a crowd, or a camera, instead imagine you are talking to your friend – the one who brings out the best in you.  

2 – Your presentation is your gift – your present.  People love to learn so be excited to share with them your knowledge or idea.  

3 – Rehearse – so you get comfortable. And always learn your intro so you get off to a good start.  

4 – Find somewhere early in the presentation where you can take a breath.   Asking your audience a question for example.  

5 – The power pose.  It works for me every time.  Before you do your presentation stand up, and hold a ‘power pose’ – a pose that makes you feel powerful.   And you may find it will take your brain into a positive space.  

Enjoy it!

Liz Truss Speech

What did you think of Liz Truss’ speech yesterday as she entered no 10?  As we sit here on a long train journey up north we wanted to share our thoughts…

This was her opportunity to shine.  To show the nation a new leader.  And to be unique. Here’s what we thought…

1.  Passion.  For us it lacked genuine and honest passion.  Words need to come from the heart not just the head.  They need to be felt not just spoken.  It’s not enough to write a ‘powerful speech’ - your delivery can change and add so much.  You need to bring your script to life.  Play with the words.  Use the words.  And above all own them.

2.  Conviction.  This is an opportunity to show the nation a leader who is confident, assured and trustworthy.  But Liz didn’t feel fully connected.  She didn’t fully commit. It felt half hearted.  A leader who hasn’t yet decided ‘how I want to come across’ and ‘what are my most powerful personal attributes’ I want to display.

3.  Unique.  A speech should feel like a unique moment in time.  Something personal to you.  But this felt like a missed opportunity - a copy and paste job.  There was very little that felt this was someone laying out their own stall.  Having their own style. Instead it felt forgettably traditional and all too familiar.  So we wonder how many people really felt empowered by her speech.

4.  The visual.  Clothes and how you look do play a crucial part in how you come across. Bright colours, clean confident lines work well on camera.  Instead Liz’s outfit was more on the dark side, and felt ‘soft’ on camera.

5.  One chance.  This was a once in a lifetime moment.  Was it memorable?  Was it personal?  Was it unique?  We don’t think it was.  And that comes down to a lack of purpose.

Chris Whitty's TV Commercial

Have you seen the call to action TV commercial the Government have put out to encourage the public to get a booster? What do you think of Chris Whitty's delivery? Does it feel impactful and a successful call to action?

 

We feel it lacks the impact it deserves. And won't therefore have the impact it desires so here's where we feel he went wrong, and here's some suggestions of how it could be more impactful.

 

1. Prof Chis Witty is clearly reading a script...if you are using autocue to deliver a message use it as a memory tool and not a reading device. You should try and learn your script as best you can. If you are reading you feel detached from what you are saying.

 

2. He feels very detached from his message. If you are not connected with what you are saying, your audience won't be either. See a script as something to bring to life, to play with, rather than something that restricts your delivery.

 

3. There's no emotional connection. Chris Witty's read is very dry. But when you are delivering information ask yourself 'what is the tone of my piece and how can I embrace it'? The tone here is a big call to action. A rallying cry to ask the public to take action.

 

4. He lacks energy. The camera always dilutes what you do. It doesn't add. So if you are ever speaking on camera, make sure your energy is up.

 

5. Visually it's very flat and lacks impact. Chris looks tired. Like he has lost the battle. But video is a visual medium, so visually you need to connect. So make sure your body is connected, speak from the heart not the head, and look to physically engage with your message.

 

Let us know what you think!

Media Training

Media Training:  

 

The media is an exciting place to be, and if thought about in the right way can really help to maximise the potential of your business. 

 

We want you to be excited about your media opportunity, and make sure that you get out of it what you want.  

 

Media training is often sterile, old-fashioned and out-of-date.  Viewers are now wise to people who are ‘media trained’ – instead they want authentic speakers who communicate with personality.

 

Our media training courses are personality based – we will help you find and develop your own style and voice.  

 

We also help with your messaging, and all the other tricks of the trade we have perfected over our 20 years experience in the media.  

 

So if you want media training that is dynamic, current and gets results get in touch.
