Media Speech Training Provides:
Dynamic and Interesting Melody Patterns
We first begin by teaching you how to use skilled intonation, communicating with crisp pronunciation, controlled rate, and with interesting vocal variety. Effective intonation patterns enhance active listening and persuasion and are the most powerful skills for a convincing media message.
A Strong and Powerful Voice
Next, learn how to speak with vocal tones that are strong, rich, and vibrant sounding. Speaking from the “power spot” in your voice will also strengthen projection and sound confident for every media setting.
Breathing from the Diaphragm
Diaphragm breathing will allow you to coordinate speech and breath for longer and higher-demand speaking situations with a more open and relaxed throat and body posture. Speaking from the diaphragm will allow speech to sound fluid, controlled, and confident.
The body sends non-verbal messages. Learn how to sit or stand in front of the camera with confidence (even if nervous). How hands are positioned, the direction the feet are pointed, facial expressions, and tone of voice send messages. We ensure you will be communicating the right ones.
We teach how to get to the point quickly, clearly, and effectively with a variety of strategies. Distracting filler words such as “um”, “like”, and “ya know” weaken the message and minimize leadership will be eliminated. All messages will sound clear, confident, and effective.
We focus on your specific media project and deliver hands-on coaching to precisely craft and sharpen your message. It is an option to film coaching sessions.
Look What Former Clients Say about Working with Us!
“I didn’t present myself well and sound credible. Liz has been very helpful on what I should do and not do. I am very cognizant of the changes I want to make. When I would introduce myself, I would run out of breath. Liz taught me how to diaphragm breathe. It’s so nice to talk and not run out of breath now. All of what Liz has taught me has been very helpful and this will certainly help me in my career.”
“In my line of work I often present to physicians and other core providers. I want to sound more professional. She taught me how to speak with better intonation and have better vocal pitch and breathing. Liz will guide you all the way. She will coach you by saying do this, try this. Her class was very helpful.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is media training for?
Anyone who will be creating videos, podcasts, or expects to be interviewed publicly. We work with researchers who want to announce the latest findings, business owners or professionals who want to demonstrate their skills through videos, or podcasters who have a story to tell. All our training classes are customized to meet your needs and media training can be included in any business communication program.
Can media training classes be filmed?
They can be. We record from your phone, so you take the coaching feedback with you. We do this so there is never a worry about confidential or proprietary information being breached.
How does the online media training class compare to live training?
The training topics in terms of communication and voice are identical in terms of specific media content such as eliminating verbal filler words and poor body language while writing clear messaging and working with different media platforms. It’s very comprehensive and would be a lower cost option than private coaching.
For companies who purchase in bulk, each employee will get a single-use pass that they can take on their own timeline, and a certificate of completion is provided at the end. For both individual and bulk purchases, participants are welcome to join complimentary webinars for feedback on skills.
What does media training cover?
You will learn how to speak with interesting melody patterns with a lot of vocal variety with sharp articulation that sounds very clear and confident. Verbal viruses such as saying, “umm”, “ya know”, or “like” will be cured. How to speak with a strong voice and body language for standing, sitting, and what to do with those hands are covered.
How do media training classes work?
We offer three different custom-designed options for you to choose from. After you learn the core skills for optional communication and voicing, we will immediately begin working on your media content.
