Our consulting firm headquartered in NYC has been helping stars shine brighter since 2006. We help our clients discover the core of their individual brand and how to communicate the right message at the right time during an interview, regardless of how challenging the interview questions may appear.


We prepare you to be in control of the impression you make.  How you present your message, answer questions, and react with the media will establish the impression of your brand.  

You are not just being media trained.  You will have your own interview producer.  In addition to learning the basics of how to do an interview on various mediums, you will learn the secrets of the interview process, and how to position your outcome.

A session consists of three phases:

Phase 1

Phase 2


Additional sessions are geared towards press tours and specific outlets where expected interview questions are prepared and answers developed and edited using your own words in preparation for any interviews and public events.

How to ace an interview

We can help you deliver memorable and effective communications, preparing our clients for confident and successful interviews.

No session is the same as our customized media training sessions will help you make a lasting impression with more engaging interviews.
