Media Training


Deliver your message confidently and effectively.

Have media interviews coming up?
Want to feel more confident on TV, video, podcasts, & panels?
We can help!

Extensive media experience

We understand how to deliver a great interview, whether you have 3 minutes in a TV segment or 30 minutes in a podcast interview or panel discussion.

Our coaches have extensive experience on TV, radio, video, podcasts, panels, and speaking (in person and virtually).

We'll prepare you so you feel more comfortable and confident.

There are differences in being interviewed on podcasts, TV, radio, and publications and we'll go over each of these with you.

We'll role play interviews, make sure your background and lighting look great for video, and help you develop your presence.

1:1 Media Coaching & Prep

  • You'll work together one-on-one with your coach in 2 sessions on Zoom (45 minutes each).
  • You can use that time to role play the interviews, practice your delivery and presence, identify your best talking points, and make sure your background looks good and your tech is working properly.
  • Your coach will also review some of your previous media interviews (TV, speaking, panels, podcasts) and provide feedback for where to improve.

Group Media Training Workshop

  • Have up to 6 participants attend a group workshop on Zoom (2 hours).
  • The first 30 minutes of the workshop will be training on how to deliver engaging and confident media interviews and panel discussions, including how to prep and how to handle tech issues.
  • The remaining 90 minutes will be used for each person to practice their delivery and presence, identify their best talking points, and make sure their background looks good and their tech is working properly.

How We Helped One Client with Her Media Prep

I was talking with a friend this weekend about Sophia's Kelly Clarkson Show interview. She mentioned how well Sophia did and how collected she was with her thoughts and talking points. I mentioned that she had expert coaching with a speaking coach. Then I realized that I hadn't given a big shout-out to her coach and the company.

BIG SHOUT OUT to Carol Cox and Marie Fiebach of Speaking Your Brand. Sophia got the email from the show's producer on a Wednesday that the following Wednesday they would record the segment. I told Sophia to let me reach out to Carol to see if they can squeeze you in on short notice for some coaching. I have worked with Carol in the past so I immediately thought of her firm to coach Sophia.

Marie was able to schedule two sessions with Sophia before the show. After their first session, Sophia called me and told me how helpful the coaching session was with Marie. She taught Sophia how to handle impromptu interview questions and to know her talking points. She looked at Sophia's wardrobe (on Zoom) and made suggestions on what to wear. She looked around her apartment in DC and told her the best place to sit and what to have behind her. She and her roommates had all kinds of junk on the bookshelf that needed to be removed. I don't think she would have done as well as she did without expert help.

So, if you are a female entrepreneur or executive and want to know how to communicate with confidence, I highly recommend Carol and her team!

I engaged Speaking Your Brand to facilitate a workshop on the topic of public speaking with our Women’s Leadership Group, with the goal of giving our women leaders techniques and strategies to have stronger voices in their professional and personal lives. 

They delivered expertly threaded topics that not only provided the group with insight on how to use public speaking strategies in their everyday work, meetings, and more, but created an atmosphere of sharing, growing and learning.

Our group left the workshop feeling inspired, energized, and ready to speak up and take ownership for their voice in their community, workplace and personal lives.

Have questions or aren’t sure which is right for you?

Hi, I’m Carol Cox, founder of Speaking Your Brand®.

I believe that as high-performing women we change the paradigm, the perception of ambitious women, by more of us actively and visibly pursuing bigger, audacious goals, raising our voices and sharing our stories about what really matters – on stages, in boardrooms, in our businesses, in the media – so others can learn from our journeys, see themselves in ours, and become leaders in their own companies and communities.

I started Speaking Your Brand® to provide the coaching, strategy, support, and confidence you need to take your story and your craft and turn it into a signature talk that provides immense value to your audience and to your business.
