*** Introducing Effective Media Training … Online

It's like a teleseminar, only better. The online version of At Ease With the Media is now available at its own website (www.AtEaseWithTheMedia.com).

This self-study program provides spokespeople with tools and insights to manage exchanges with reporters to win-win outcomes, while applying risk management strategies to protect their reputation and their organization's.

The program consists of 10 audio-visual modules that vary in length from four to 13 minutes and cover a range of topics. Each module is accompanied by a five-question quiz. Spokespeople view the modules and complete the quizzes. Those who earn a combined score of 45/50 receive a Certificate of Completion for the program.

“The quizzes serve two purposes,” says Eric Bergman, ABC, APR, who designed the program and is also author of the train-the-trainer guide Media Training With Excellence: A Balanced Approach (http://iabcstore.com/prmediarelations/mediatraining.htm). “First, they force participants to listen to the information contained in the modules. Second, they help internalize the concepts taught. Testing has shown the program to be extremely effective at achieving both ends.”

The modules cover topic areas that include: Managing Polarization; Working With Reporters; Negotiating the Interview; Print vs Broadcast; and Managing Risk. “Participants have commented that the 'Managing Risk' module alone is worth the cost of the program,” Bergman says.

The program is extremely flexible and adaptable. Organizations can offer all modules to their spokespeople, or only offer specific modules. The online version can be used as stand-alone training, or offered in conjunction with “live” training — either in person or via teleconference.

“The original idea was to bring cost-effective media training to a wide geographic audience,” says Bergman. “And there is no better program available for doing that. But beyond that original aim, At Ease With the Media sets a new standard for media training that helps an organization's spokespeople create strategic outcomes from their exchanges with journalists.”

*** Your Very Next Step:

Ned finally published the April issue of YVNS, which just barely qualified as the April/May issue when it was posted towww.yourverynextstep.com yesterday. Check it out. It has much, but not all, of Ned’s recent trip to Abu Dhabi and India.

*** Anna took the step:

Hi Ned,

I was fascinated reading of your wonderful trip. As I read it, and will still need to go back and reread as it was so enjoyable, it struck me it has makings of a screenplay.

You are brilliant.

Well done!

*** From Katie Andriulli:

Hi Ned,

I'm a long-time JOTW user, so first and foremost, thanks for keeping such a great list! It has been very helpful for me and my friends many times over!

Secondly, I had a sort-of job opportunity I wanted to share with you. If it's not appropriate for the list, I completely understand, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask!

My organization, Campus Progress (part of the Center for American Progress) is running a T-Shirt Design Contest in support of our 2009 National Youth Conference which is taking place here in DC in July (check out the website www.campusprogress.org/designprogress for more details.)

The grand prize is $800, and the winning design will be featured in the indie pub Utne Reader, and have their design printed and distributed to the 1,000 conference attendees. We have an awesome line-up of judges this year, including Chester French, designer Rogan Gregory, and Chris Shiflett from the Foo Fighters. Although this is not a traditional job posting, I thought it was somewhat in the spirit of the list.

Let me know if I can get you any additional info, or if you have any questions.

Thank you so much in advance!

Best,

Katie

(I used to be for youth, but now that I’ve had a couple I’m not so sure. Anyway, I'll post. Always happy to support the T-shirt movement.)
