Media Training & Voiceovers

I am now offering personalised media training for individuals or companies.

Media Training.









There’s an old adage in football commentary – ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail.’ It equally applies to representing your company or organisation should you appear on TV or radio.

Every single day people are interviewed by journalists. Some of these concern very serious issues, many are reasonably important.

Whatever the subject, if you go into an interview scenario unprepared there is a strong possibility you will come away from it dissatisfied with your performance, and feeling that you haven’t got your message across. So how do you ensure that this doesn’t happen?

Media Training from John Roder. Appearing on radio and TV isn’t as daunting as it sounds, and with media training tailored to your requirements you’ll be fully prepared.

With individually designed sessions I’ll take you through how to master the art of being interviewed on TV and radio.

I will provide you with expert advice so you look and sound relaxed whilst on-air, promoting your brand and creating opportunities for new business.

I can offer a full day, half day, or even an hour of training, to help you prepare for a media interview, whether that is business or sports related. Training can be provided online.

Edd Moore Editor Plymouth Live. "John's expert guidance was crucial to the success of a high-profile live broadcast on PlymouthLive ahead of the 2019 General Election. As a print and online journalist, I faced presenting and chairing a live debate with election candidates having had very little on-screen experience. With just a few hours tuition and preparation from John, the task at hand felt a lot less daunting. His professionalism, experience and ability to calmly and honestly convey simple but key tips and advice helped my confidence and, most importantly, the quality of the live broadcast immeasurably."
