Experienced, credentialed and effective
Canada’s best media training consultant
Eric prepared his first spokespeople during the summer of 1981 while conducting a media relations campaign to support two student theatre productions, Pal Joey and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. After arranging a series of interviews with journalists, he provided cast and crew with coaching.
He has been self-employed since September, 1985. Media training and issues management have been Eric's core business for more than 25 years. His media training approach, based on demonstrating transparency and building trust, has helped thousands of spokespeople from six continents manage exchanges with journalists to win-win outcomes.
And his proprietary defensive strategies enable his clients to protect themselves and their organization at all times.
Spokespeople who work with Eric learn to seek opportunities to use interviews to support business and communication objectives. They understand how to manage the risk(s) associated with representing their organization. And they gain a new range of communication skills that can impact and improve every aspect of their personal and professional lives.
Contact Eric if you’re interested in putting his unique, effective and proven approach to work for your organization’s spokespeople.
