Interacting with the Media: Make Your Nonprofit Shine

There are three important rules for interacting with the media: Prepare, Prepare, Prepare.
In this workshop, you learn how to:
• Develop a media fact file for your organization
• Prepare in advance for an interview: whether they contact you or you contact them
• Be interviewed while remaining confident and credible
• Answer the tough questions
• Be ready for the reporter showing up at your event
• Be ready for a crises situation
• Answer effectively when the surprise phone call comes
• Be professional but still ‘connect’ with viewers on TV and listeners on radio
• Create a media-ready team within your organization
• Conduct briefing sessions with your staff (each one is a "spokesperson" whenever he/she talks formally or informally about your organization)
• Understand ways to develop and use messages that benefit your organization
