Media Training

FIT FOR MEDIA COMMUNICATION

2 independent yet combinable workshops: Press & PR / TV & Radio

Unknown situations create insecurity and insecurity distracts you from the essence: your successful performance.

We are going to prepare you. Step by step, with plenty of practice and video recording, individually and tailored to meet your requirements.

We, meaning Angela Bittner and Andreas Hieke, are happy to share our years of professional experience with you.
