When you need us

BlackRook’s consultants have a genuine track record in helping people at all levels successfully navigate media interviews – from celebrities in the spotlight, to MPs and business leaders.

We’re working right now for broadcasters and coming into daily contact with spokespeople trying to deliver their messages with confidence and clarity.

Some manage to do that. Some don’t…

BlackRook can help you if you need to:

  • Prepare for a specific announcement, product launch or PR campaign
  • Develop your spokespeople into respected industry commentators
  • Coach a senior executive to undertake a particular print, online or broadcast interview
  • Refine and refresh the interview skills of your board-level executives
  • Help your technical experts build successful relationships with key trade media
  • Enhance the interview techniques and abilities of your press office or public affairs teams
  • Be confident that frontline staff including receptionists, PAs and call centre managers can handle media enquiries expertly and efficiently
  • Ensure business continuity or site leadership teams can manage the media in the event of a major incident or emergency
  • Make sure your senior spokespeople would be able to communicate their key messages and cope with the media in a crisis
  • Test the effectiveness of your spokespeople and media response through a live crisis exercise
