To be as impactful as possible in today’s fast-paced, media-driven business environment, executives must understand how to work with media to their best advantage, and how to leverage that to most effectively represent their company in interviews.

On March 22, 2013, Mitch’s Media Match (www.mitchsmediamatch.com), a service that connects Atlanta reporters with local sources and experts, will offer a media training session to maximize your company’s opportunities for success and growth.  

“Media training is often an expense that growing companies with tight budgets feel they can’t afford, but such training is vital to helping a business prosper,” says Atlanta media relations expert Mitch Leff, who for more than 20 years has worked successfully with Atlanta media.  “Atlanta is an influential media market and there’s no more effective way to market your company than a well-placed interview.”

Leff added that his training session will teach participants how to make interviews successful, for themselves and the reporters with whom they’re working.

Mitch’s Media Match (M3) expert database service, used by Atlanta media across the metro area, provides companies with a database to detail their areas of expertise. When reporters are searching for a particular skill set, the M3 site is one of their “go to” tools.

As value-added service to Mitch’s Media Match members, the Peritus* media training session provides the core skills professionals need to be effective expert sources for media. Peritus* uses a small group training methodology, with each session taught by experienced public relations professionals and former journalists.
