Sophie Atherton - Freelance Journalist
Media Training

Whether you want to learn to write a successful press release, how to do a radio or TV interview or get a general idea of how to do media work that will achieve the publicity you need, I can help you. I can tailor courses or advice sessions to suit your needs and your budget.

Most of my jobs over the last ten years have included training others in media skills. I have coached and mentored colleagues on an individual basis and run training sessions for larger groups.

My students have ranged from young people on work experience placements and RSPB volunteers of all ages, to conservation workers more used to surveying birds and writing scientific reports than talking to the media and managers who had to be prised away from their budget sheets!

Whether you have no idea of where to start or have some experience but would like to improve your skills, I can offer media training to suit your level of knowledge. Contact me for an informal chat about your media training needs.
