Group Seminars

At group seminars, our coaches educate all sports professionals about the importance of a unified representation of the team and sports organization in the media. No matter what one’s role is on a team, every member must be prepared to comfortably face cameras and microphones on a daily basis. The seminars cover the basics of media etiquette, the fundamentals of public speaking, how to ensure a successful interview and what one can do to improve and maintain their public image.
