Media Training – Thanks John Collins!

Feedback so far on the Media Training class on Wednesday has been quite positive and I hope that those on the course will start popping up in the media more and more. They certainly have the products and knowledge to get themselves into the press.

A huge thanks to a very nice and helpful John Collins from the Irish Times who’s even busier these days as he’s acting Assistant Business Editor. He spoke to us for 30 minutes on how to work with him and journalists in general and what works and doesn’t work. Again, thanks John.

Colin sent the above pic on. He suggested I photoshop myself to look like I’m interested. Oddly, when I’m paying real attention to something, I look like I’m tuned out. More on that in a later post.

I’ve been asked about the Cork one. There’s a difference between those who are interested and those who will pay for the course. I won’t train less than 10 and more than 12 people in a class. 6 have said they’ll actually attend. So let me know.

    Great course Damien – people underestimate how much PR they can do themselves. Of course it takes practice but courses like this really help. Glad I could attend – time to use what I have learned.

    Liar…you never look interested.

  4. It was a great Class. Thanks Damien and also John.
    I am still processing the large amount of invaluable information picked up at it.

    I’ll definitely attend the Cork one

  6. That picture is worrying. It can often look more professional if you turn up sober.

  7. […] I mentioned in this blog post, I look like I’m daydreaming or switched off when I’m paying full attention. I guess I […]
