Jo Pearson has helped hundreds of individuals and businesses get their message across more powerfully in her tailored media and presentation skills courses.
Jo and her team have coached leading CEOs and senior executives, emergency services, managers, commissioners, elected representatives, researchers, lawyers, sales teams, charitable organisations, television presenters and Olympic athletes.
The energetic and practical style of training equips her clients with the techniques and confidence to face television cameras, take control of difficult media situations, and speak effectively to audiences ranging from one to one thousand.
'It is easy to tell when athletes are interested in a presentation. The issues which you raised were ingrained in the athletes, which is a credit to the passion you have for your work and the rapport that you developed with them in a very short period of time.'
Jo trained as a newspaper journalist and worked as a senior prime-time television newsreader, journalist, producer, reporter and radio host for nearly twenty years in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and the United States. Most recently, she led the Industry News Special Projects team at ITN Productions in London.
Jo provides high-energy tailored training sessions, with valuable insights into the emotional, psychological and strategic imperatives of good message management and communication skills.
'Since my media training session with you, I have been interviewed on radio - plus a ten second TV news ‘grab’ and I have you to thank for being able to handle those interviews in a confident manner. Always at the back of my mind were your wise words of professional advice.'
