DEC (Disasters Emergency Committee) brings together 15 leading UK aid charities to raise funds quickly at times of crisis overseas. So it’s essential that the charity can communicate effectively through the media.
I ran a half-day 1:1 media training session for DEC Cymru. The training included presentations, discussions, examples and ‘role-play’ exercises. Following the training, I provided personalised written feedback.
“The session with Richard helped me gain a much better understanding of the different types of media interviews we might be asked to respond as an organisation. I left the session feeling much more confident about being able to prepare effectively for these. Being able to conduct mock interviews – in both English and Welsh – was a huge bonus. I’m sure I’ll return to my notes time and again!Siân Stephen, External Relations Manager (Wales), DEC – Disasters Emergency Committee
