Our services

In an increasingly complex world, effective communication is a critical skill for business leaders. Mediacoaching© helps leaders succeed in all public speaking situations, using our unique message management method. The method helps leaders craft a clear and powerful message, deliver it with confidence, and interact effectively with their audience.

Effective communication is a critical skill

Rapid technological change and globalisation have intensified competition in every sector. As businesses adapt, decision-makers need to reassure and convince their stakeholders, by explaining increasingly complex issues. Communicating with confidence and clarity is essential for organisations and individuals if they want to make the right impact.

Success in all public speaking situations

Founded by journalists, Mediacoaching© has trained 6,200 business leaders in every kind of company, from successful startups to fast-growing medium-sized companies and multinationals such as Ferrero, L’Oréal, Oracle and Sodexo. We have applied our method to all public speaking situations, from convincing the board of directors to winning tenders, delivering key messages internally and interacting with the media.

A clear message, delivered with confidence

The Mediacoaching© method draws on more than 15 years of experience preparing business leaders for public speaking events. We use journalism storytelling techniques and acting skills to help business leaders communicate with confidence and authority. Each training session focuses on crafting one clear message that will make an impact on key audiences, delivering it with confidence, and role plays to simulate tough Q&A situations.

“The dozens of managers who have attended sessions are now fully prepared for effective external interviews, as well as external and internal presentations. The coaching goes much further than classic media training, which tends to undermine participants before building them up again. In contrast, Mediacoaching is a method that invites participants to reflect, learn a journalism approach, and improve their skills in structuring ideas and information. This tried and tested method boosts participants’ confidence and the effectiveness of their communications in a wide range of situations.”

FerreroFood industry

“I had some experience of public speaking in crisis situations and presenting to investors, but our IPO was a different story. I wanted to feel at ease in any situation I might encounter. The morning I spent with Mediacoaching was fantastic. We did so much more than simply prepare a speech: we managed to sharpen McPhy Energy’s core message. I had interviews with all kinds of media, and thanks to the session, I was able to make my message clear and compelling, and this message was heard by a very wide audience.”
