  • Title: International media training | U2Media
    Descriptive info: If you understand journalists and what they need to produce a good story, you won't see them as the enemy.. When it comes to.. media trainin.. g, our accent is on cross-border communication.. How do you get your story across to target groups outside your home market? Are the British press going to ask the same questions as the Dutch?.. And what happens when something goes wrong? When the world’s media spotlights are suddenly glaring at your company or organisation? Because you have to announce job cuts, or someone at your school goes crazy, or Facebook directs thousands of teenagers to your village? Or there’s a major train crash, court case or explosion in the place you are responsible for… What are you going to say?.. Formulating and delivering.. key messages.. , preparing.. press conferences.. interviewing.. presentation.. techniques,.. writing web text.. , the art of.. blogging.. crisis communication.. or adding.. social media.. to the communication mix.. The focus is up to you.. The context is up to you too: individual training sessions, team workshops, management seminars, conference presentations or discussion panels..  ...   - a very remarkable result.. ”.. Margherita Buoso, European Space Agency.. “Over the years, we have used U2Media for media training at management and executive board level.. Instead of focusing on weaknesses, U2Media builds on an individual’s strengths, giving people the confidence to get clear messages across.. U2Media's team of experts are highly capable.. Cilesta van Doorn, Manager Corporate Communications Tele2.. “U2Media's media training was fantastic.. I will never forget the importance of preparing key messages and learnt to love the TV camera rather than fear it.. The critical and constructive feedback was just what I needed.. Ans Zwerver, former Dutch Green Party senator and member of the Council of Europe (now country director Afghanistan for the National Democratic Institute).. “We used U2Media for a variety of sessions – from media training for support staff to presentation training at executive level.. We particularly appreciate U2Media's combination of trainers from different disciplines.. They are well prepared and give valuable feedback, especially on the practical exercises in front of the camera.. “.. Nanke Kramer, former Corporate Communications Manager, APX Group.. 3 = igh e..

  • Title: Journalism training worldwide | U2Media
    Descriptive info: The media sector hugely under-estimates the importance of training – it would be great if organisations invested as much time and effort in human capacity as they do in technology.. Do you use text to communicate? To tell stories online, on.. Facebook.. and on.. ? To inform and explain things people need to know? Then you may be a journalist – but you could also be a communication professional at a company, pubic sector organisation or NGO.. Because.. storytelling.. is no longer the exclusive domain of journalists..

Amna Bagadi, online producer Al Jazeera English.. “I have been very fortunate to have had Abi coaching me..

  • Title: How we work | U2Media
    Descriptive info: Why do you, or someone in your organisation, need training? What do you/they need to learn? This is how we start, by asking questions.. And this is how we work – by constantly asking ouselves what is the best way to achieve.. your.. goals.. We believe in a pro-active relationship with clients and trainees.. In ‘learning by doing’ and learning by sharing skills, experiences and insights.. By challenging each other.. Most people already know what they should do, or how they should do something.. But some extra theory can be useful in translating knowledge into skills.. Then it’s a question of practicing.. And trying out new ways of doing  ...   will only change the way they do something, or learn new skills, if it gives them the results they want.. And results is what our training is about.. Not just during the training, but in real life.. That’s why we spend a lot of time preparing our workshops to reflect the realities of trainees’ lives.. As professionals but also as individuals.. And why we are flexible in how we work.. Have we challenged you enough to want more information? Call..

  • Title: Is journalism about news or story-telling? | U2Media
    Descriptive info: According to former NYT multimedia journalist Zach Wise, long-form journalism is on its way back.. Wise, who has won various awards for his work, was guest speaker at the Dutch journalist association’s New Year get-together in Amsterdam recently hosted by U2Media trainer.. Wise says the trend back towards longer online stories is partly driven by the growing importance of mobiles and tablets which mean you no longer have to sit upright behind a computer when you’re reading.. Entice readers.. While I certainly agree that where and how people read influences how much they’re willing to read, I’m still not convinced that most stories are written in a compelling enough way to entice readers to plough through endless text.. The exception to the KISS (Keep It Short Simple) rule is of course when you are an amazing story-teller with an amazing story to tell.. But then how many of us are potential Pullitzer prize winners?.. Despite being  ...   casinos.. It’s probably a terrific story but at 4,355 words I didn’t read to the end.. As a consumer I’m still addicted to speed and the beauty of an eight-word headline that says it all.. And as a journalist I love the challenge of KISSing and the poetry of a 140 character tweet.. But perhaps Wise is right – we can have both.. Highlights of Wise s work can be seen at.. digitalartwork.. net.. Wise is assistant professor at Medill School of Journalism in Chicago and is involved in the Knight Lab which combines journalism and computer science to work on cutting-edge media innovation.. By Abi Daruvalla.. 0.. Recent Posts.. It’s hard to KISS when you’re a scientist.. Let’s talk crap.. Training is more fun with women.. And with men.. Tags.. Bangladesh.. Copernicus..
