Training Resource for Spokespersons, Presenters, Managers, Leaders and more

Hammer and nailClients tell us that Loeb Group workshops nail it! The training experience is relevant and the trainers blend their content expertise with deep understanding of the client’s organization, culture, strengths and areas for development. The problems tackled, scenarios explored and facilitated discussions are all customized for each workshop. At the end of each training session, the participants have stronger skills, new insights and greater confidence.

In each of the categories below we’ve listed a few of the workshops we offer:

Executive Spokesperson Media Training: How to Master the Media Interview (with videotaped constructive critique)

“I’d recommend Loeb Group training for anyone going before the press, no matter how experienced they think they are.”
(Manager at global financial services firm.)

“The Loeb Group trainers went beyond the usual advice by engaging in the content of each individual’s speech…Our presenters valued the practical, encouraging and actionable advice.”
(COO at global management consulting firm)

“The Loeb Group trainer blended experience, expertise, enthusiasm and motivation to help us learn the skills we need as spokespersons.”
(Senior level manager at a Fortune 100 technology company)

When a spokesperson needs to prepare for a media tour to announce a new product launch; when your company is gearing up for wanted or unwanted media scrutiny; when your company has a policy that every spokesperson needs to be media trained before talking with the press; or when your executives ramble or talk in “corporate speak” and reporters aren’t hearing anything worth quoting.
