Media Training: Tips for Getting Past the CEO’s “NO!”

Where do you turn when your CEO puts the kibosh to the idea of media training saying, I don t need it or It s a waste of time?

Media training experts and former reporters, Brian Ellis with CRT/tanaka and Bill Oglesby with Oglesby Media Consulting, discussed tips to get past the No" from executives when it comes to media training.

My friends and former co-workers spoke at the Public Relations Society of America Richmond, Va., chapter meeting on April 27, 2011. I worked with Ellis and Oglesby along with my wife and business partner, Michele Rhudy, APR, at Carter Ryley Thomas (now CRT/tanaka).

Ellis and Oglesby shared their insights as media trainers and media relations professionals with entertaining and relevant examples.
