Bel Air, Maryland (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
There are only a few seats remaining for the third Media Boot Camp for Executives presented by the Fallston Group and SLM Multimedia. The inaugural program season (2012), was a tremendous success as the Fallston Group and SLM teamed to execute two sold-out programs for executives in varying industries from different parts of the country. Company executives say, just like the two previous sessions, they expect another sell-out for the 2013 media training session.
In addition to receiving personalized training on how to effectively tell their story to their key stakeholders, participants will also learn how to “build their brand” via news stories in local and national media outlets. This interactive day of training will improve the preparation, messaging and presentation skills of leaders who must be at the top of their game in the “court of public opinion.” The 2013 Media Boot Camp for Executives will be held Thursday, October 3rd. As with all previous “Boot Camps” participants will have a behind-the-scenes tour of the WJZ-TV newsroom (Baltimore’s CBS network affiliate), a session on brand-building via the media, on-camera interviews with local media personalities, a media roundtable discussion, and post-interview analysis and critiques. The round-table discussion, media training and a lunch will take place at the Four Seasons – Baltimore Hotel & Resort after the WJZ-TV portion of the day.
“This is an exciting opportunity for executives who want to sharpen their confidence and communication skills,” says Rob Weinhold, Principal of the Fallston Group. “We have put together a high-performing training team from all segments of the news media, including local news reporters, producers, videographers, editors, and public affairs experts. Our goal is to provide participants with the unique skills they need to concisely, effectively, and successfully tell their story, whether on-camera or within their stakeholder network.”
A portion of the proceeds from each event will benefit the There Goes My Hero Foundation (http://www.theregoesmyhero.org). The Foundation provides hope and nourishment to Leukemia patients and their families.
“There is no better way to learn than from those who will ultimately tell your story,” says SLM Multimedia Principal and event partner, Greg Marsh. “The event will give participants a deep understanding of how to speak concisely, manage nervousness, eliminate distractions, and project a sense of poise and belief while educating, informing or persuading.”
