Being interviewed can be an unnerving experience especially for those who are new to it. There is often a misconception that the interviewee will be able to control the interview and how it subsequently appears, when that is rarely the reality.
If the interviewer is experienced and good at their job they will make you feel you are in control, relaxed and that all of what you have to say is equally important and interesting. However you may be disappointed if that is not what you feel when you see the playback. You may feel misrepresented even if the interview was live and unedited.
With media training Alec can help you practice getting the best out of a media interview.
