James Whale & David Bell to host Media, PR & Speakers Masterlcass

James Whale (well-known broadcaster and radio presenter) and David Bell (The founder of The Speaker Expert) will be sharing their biggest secrets about media & PR to delivering killer presentations & professional interviews. 

This one day masterclass will cover all the little things that are important about media, PR and speaking, but James & David will also be sharing so much more.

The Masterclass is being held at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, Essex on Wednesday 15th June and is open to anyone who is interested in developing their skills in these three core areas of media, PR and public speaking. 

The masterclass is designed to give you the skills, tools and techniques to help you become the go-to expert in your field of expertise. Often experts are asked to provide their opinions in the media or on stage in front of an audience. However more often an not these experts miss out on these opportunities as they don't have the skills or confidence to stand-up and deliver a compelling talk or interview. 

If you want to join James and David for this one day masterclass which is going to be interactive, fun and educational then book your place before the end of May and receive not only the Media Masterclass with James and David but also as a bonus get David's Speaker Expert Masterclass on Wednesday 20th July, "How to speak and present like an expert" at no additional cost.
