    As PR pros, we realize that any spokeperson can benefit from media training -- even the ones who are well-spoken in different settings. In the heat of an interview, it's easy to get caught up in a reporter's questions and overlook intended message points. Karen Friedman has seen it all, from both sides of the camera – first as a reporter and now as an internationally sought-after communications expert. There's a lot of prep work PR pros must do behind the scenes to ensure that spokespeople hone key messages and are prepared — no matter what is thrown their way. Join PPRA for a lively breakfast program and hear directly from Karen and former 6ABC investigative reporter Wendy Saltzman about why spokesperson training is so important, how to secure executive buy-in, and what it takes for a powerful spokesperson to support organizational goals beyond the media.
