Media Training for Architects

Traditional media can be a great way to build your practice profile and gain publicity for your projects.

Whether you need training on being a better media commentator, improving your interview techniques or using smarter tactics for responding to negative press attention, or simply to increase the popularity of your designs – Luminescence can help with our tailored Media Training for Architects.

How will Media Training for Architects help your practice?

Each session helps you to demystify the motivations of journalists and deliver tactics for how your practice and lead architects can handle journalist motivations and requirements for their own benefit.

In a stress-free manner the attendees are given the tools and confidence they need to get the right message ‘out there’ and an understanding of the opportunities as well as the challenges of engaging with journalists.

Most crucially by the end of the end of the session the information and practical section of the training will help prevent corporate clangers, mis-quotes, mis-information or leaks of commercially sensitive corporate information.All participants will get a “cheat sheet” for interacting with the press in the future.
