Preparation Is Key: Media TrainingWe are live: Make your media appearance a success
Preparation for media appearances
For a successful performance in front of camera and microphone, read the tips for your appearance in the media. Benefit from media training and consulting.
It often happens quickly and unexpectedly: the media asks you for your review. Mostly it’s a topic on which you are familiar, expected questions you can answer easily. But on camera or live in the studio the adrenaline suddenly rises to what feels like fatal levels. From one question to the next, you stumble through and answers start to seem out of reach and it’s harder to concentrate. You realize that you need to sort out your thoughts because you appear flustered.
Even the best public speakers have been through it. However, your credibility is at the center of attention so it is important to formulate your statements clearly and to the point, to show a compelling presence and to handle even those uncomfortable questions with ease.
So that you leave a lasting positive impression on journalists and audiences minds, come for a consultation with me. I myself, have on numerous occasions stood in front of a camera and addressed large audiences. Let me tell you about the rules of the media and support you with coaching and individual training …
- to strengthen your ability to concentrate in the spotlight and make your arguments accessible at any time
- to clarify your statements and vocabulary to communicate your ideas convincingly
- to learn how to confidently deal with provocation, irrelevant questions, and insinuations
- to optimize your charisma, vocal power, facial expressions, and gestures.
And now a warm welcome for our guest here live with us in the studio …

It may be mere speculation that Donald Trump is compensating for something. Yes, certain behavior may give that impression.
Let me analyze Donald Trump’s body language when he met Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Duško Marković and other leaders at the NATO-Summit in Brussels.
