26th Mar 2019

Tuesday 26 March 2019 at Philanthropy House, 9.30am to 4.30pm

An intensive full day’s seminar meeting your personal needs and ambitions in a very small group.

Community Foundation Media Training is designed specifically for the voluntary sector, and will give you the confidence to use the media to celebrate and promote everything you and your team does on TV, radio, online and in the press. 

The day is presented by Mary Askew and Mark Batey, both former BBC journalists who have been running media training events in all sectors over the last 6 years. 

With a maximum of six delegates working with two trainers, you will benefit from a highly personal approach to dealing with the media.

You will spend a lot of time preparing and practising in front of camera, gaining valuable experience that will build your confidence. 

With Community Foundation's long experience in the sector, we know the sorts of issues you face and the sorts of stories you want to tell. This seminar is based around a series of hyper-realistic scenarios that will be the basis for your media training.

Mary Askew spent twenty years as an award winning print, radio and TV journalist.  Latterly she was BBC Political Editor presenting live programmes on BBC One.

Mark Batey is a talented film-maker who was a BBC TV Director for twenty years. Working with the BBC Academy, Mark has trained thousands of BBC Journalists to produce and direct their own films – both in the UK and overseas.
