Put your journalism skills to work in a new way with this two-day course.

Journalists and media professionals are expert communicators, with skills and insights that are highly sought-after and have the potential to earn you a lucrative secondary revenue stream. But being a good journalist doesn’t automatically make you a good media trainer. Learn to use your experience and understanding of the journalism world to build and sell media training to corporate professionals. Develop an understanding of your own unique media skill set and how to successfully pitch training to clients. Translate your years of experience into a course that can make you good money, and help your clients communicate better in the corporate, government or NGO worlds. 

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to: 

  • Use your journalism skills in the corporate training world 
  • Build original media training offerings 
  • Create a great learning experience for clients 
  • Introduce practical exercises and role-playing elements 
  • Identify and approach potential clients 
  • Appropriately price and pitch your media training solutions
