Thank you for your fun and informative session yesterday. Despite forcing us out of our comfort zones, the feedback was beneficial, and I feel better prepared to get our message out to the community. I appreciate your time and expertise and found the booklet to be a valuable resource to hold onto. It was a pleasure working with you.

The training provided by Greg Glynn of Marshall Communications provided me valuable skills and knowledge in preparing for a media interview. I have no doubt that I will continue to draw upon what I learned through this training in future media appearances. During the training, his presentations addressed a wide range of issues that effectively prepared me to convey what I wanted in the interview. I learned what to expect, how to prepare fully for the interview, and how to use this interview to open up future opportunities. Above all, the training helped me become more strategic in interviews with the media.
