Are you looking for a Private, In-person One-on-One or Group Media Training?

The TJ Walker Private Media Training Workshop

Imagine yourself or your colleagues being interviewed by all the local, national or international media that cover your business. And you are completely confident and relaxed that you look and sound your best and that you are going to get the exact quotes you want in the final stories.

Imagine that a crisis hits your organization, yet you are completely confident that you can address all of your customers, investors, suppliers and supporters by speaking to them directly, within minutes, by using online social media video.
Won't you sleep better at night knowing you have these skills? Won't your career progress even faster with these talents?
You can become a confident, skilled media communicator in ONE day!


Do you know how to speak to the media if they call you?
Do you know how to speak directly to your customers, clients, investors, and stakeholders using Facebook Live, YouTube, and Skype?
Personal message from TJ
If you want to be a successful author, expert, CEO, product manager, government official or thought leader you must have the ability to speak to the news media effectively AND to speak on video using social media. The lines between traditional news media and new social media have become blurred. To reach real success, you must become a master media communicator in every scenario.


The TJ Walker One-Day (or Two-Day) Media Training Crash Course Workshop will build the following skills in you:

  • 1. Look Your Best on Camera. Whether it is looking your best on NBC's Today Show or standing in front of your office broadcasting through Facebook Live on your cell phone, you will learn how to look comfortable, confident, and relaxed. You will come across in the style you want-every time!
  • 2. Develop Your Message. You will learn how to develop simple, concise messages that will work for any media outlet, including your own. Telling people everything you know is easy. Summing up what is most important in 30 seconds is hard--until you know the process.
  • 3. Answer Questions from the Media. There is an art to answering questions from journalists. You don't want to dodge questions like phony politicians, but you DO want to answer questions in a strategic way, to lead the conversation to the messages you care about the most.
  • 4. Speak in Sound Bites. Whether it is a tweet that gets re-tweeted a million times or a quote that gets used in Prime Time on CNN, you will learn the secret formula for packaging ideas so that reporters and the public will instantly latch onto your words and pass them on.


Message from your trainer, TJ Walker

I've been conducting media training workshops for more than 30 years and I've coached Prime Ministers, Presidents of Countries, Nobel Peace Prize winners, CEOs, Fund Managers, US Senators, Members of Parliament, Professional Athletes and Miss Universes. Nobody was a natural when it came to facing the media. Everybody was at least a little nervous. Yet all of them learned to become confident and skilled when addressing the media because they followed my process.


This is a LEARNED Skill!

My Private Media Training Workshop is a massive learning by doing skills building session. You won't be listening to me deliver a lot of lectures (those will be delivered in advanced, using our blended learning online video training prep course). By the end of the one or two day training session, you will have been on video at least 10 separate times per day! You will leave the training not just with an intellectual understanding of how the media works. You will leave with actual skills that you have seen yourself demonstrate on video.

What is Unique about TJ Walker's Group or One-on-One Media Training Workshop?

  • 1. You aren't ending up with a junior trainer sub-contacted for the day (the way most big brand training organizations do). And you aren't paying for the "name" of someone who was born in the 19th century. You are getting TJ Walker, who has personally trained more than 10,000 people from six continents for more than 30 years and has coached more than 100,000 students online from more than 170 nations. You are getting the highest quality, most experienced coach. His trainings aren't based on the writings in a book from another guru. TJ wrote the book.
  • 2. You will be placed on camera to deliver sample media interviews at least 10 times per day! This is in stark contrast to the industry norm of 3-4 times on camera.
  • 3. You will be able to rehearse your first media interview AFTER the training via live Skype video with TJ.
  • 4. You will get extensive video, text, and online course follow-up for the next year, plus your future media interviews critiqued and your questions answer-IN VIDEO. You get continued support.

Who is the workshop NOT for?

  • Don't hire us if you aren't willing to be recorded speaking and to watch your own videos, repeatedly. No, practicing in front of a mirror won't cut it; that is useless.
  • Don't hire us if all you want are more facts, tips and theories (You can get that much less expensively by buying my books).
  • Don't hire us if you aren't serious about becoming a dramatically improved media communicator!
