ENGAGE, INSPIRE & INFLUENCE
A moment in the media is an excellent opportunity to build trust and influence unless you’re unprepared. Then it becomes a liability. These moments can be the “dialog” between your organization and its stakeholders. We want to help you nail it.
Our team has decades of radio, television, print, and social media experience. Our Media Consulting includes crafting the message, preparing for interviews, and mastering Q & A sessions. We are nimble and can be available on short notice. Since timing is of the essence, reach out the moment you know you have an opportunity to be in the spotlight.
I have had the pleasure of working with the Interact team for several years and I would recommend them with enthusiasm. Lou and the team provide tremendous counsel to our executive team (of a Fortune 150 company) on both internal and external communication matters. Lou is a true professional and trusted partner.
