Media Coaching

1 Comment

After almost 25 years interviewing people for newspapers, magazines and radio, as well as researching documentaries for TV,  I have discovered two things.

1.  Everybody has a story!  And everyone is interesting.

2.  Most people get nervous/anxious/agitated/panicked/sweaty  at the thought of being interviewed!simon-cowell

I LOVE to interview people about what they do, I LOVE to help them feel happy about the experience, and I especially love to interview people who have set up their own business, doing something that they LOVE and are offering something to the world that can benefit other people.

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to talk to all kinds of amazing, fascinating, entertaining and wondrous people….

These stories are inspiring and exciting and they fill me with awe.  It makes me extremely happy to help people to feel at ease with being interviewed and with uncovering their unique story and getting it into the media.  Almost everyone that I have interviewed has told me that I have a talent for helping people to relax and feel as if they are just chatting to a friend.  Well you can’t win em all!

As a journalist/broadcaster, I have written for all kinds of publications, ranging from L’Uomo Vogue

LUOMO VOGUEto The New York Daily News…..and from GraziaGRAZIA to The Times and The Guardian…….THE TIMESIMG_9886By doing this, I have got to know what all kinds of different editors and researchers are looking for, and that makes it possible for me I can help people to figure out who they can pitch themselves and their story to.

AND SO!  I am now offering my services as a Media Coach to anyone who wants HELP  to

1.  Extract and craft your story in a way that will help you to get media attention/coverage and sell their business in a way that REALLY GRABS PEOPLE and makes them love you and want to shout about you from the rooftops!

2.  Get not just comfortable with the interview process by practicing with me, but get to feel GREAT about sharing your story

3.  Identify where your story could fit….which media channels  would want to hear about you and what you do….as well as how to pitch to them.

Who should work with me?

I am not the most conventional person you will meet.

I don’t wear a suit and I don’t have a briefcase.

I don’t work in a very neat office.neat office

I don’t think in straight lines and I don’t believe that there is a one size fits all foolproof failsafe plan for anything in life, including media coaching.

I think that if you are going to work with me, you will be interested in a creative, intuitive approach to your needs….something that takes into account who YOU are and what makes you light up.


You might even be a person who likes the idea of having some fun with your media coaching and with your approach to promoting yourself!
