JOURNALIST • SPEAKER • MEDIA COACH

I'm Here to Give You the Inside Scoop on What the Media Really Wants In a Story...

I’ve been in the media for two decades, and have seen every type of pitch and interview.

 

As a news anchor and morning show host, I would receive hundreds of emails a day. Unfortunately, many of them never made it past a second glance because they were poorly composed, untargeted, and focused solely on promoting a product or service.

 

It was equally disheartening when an interview that carried great promise would fall flat, and our production team would say "We won't be having them back again!"

But -- when the interview is great, everyone wins!

Journalists are always looking for good stories and great interviews.

The reality is, you only get a few short minutes, or even just seconds to say something memorable.

 

It's my job to show you how to take control of your story and command the attention you deserve.

What Can You Learn From a Veteran Media Insider and Sought-After Speaker?

How to stand out from the crowd, attract your dream media opportunities, and captivate your audience with three key skills:

• Effective Storytelling

 • Message Mastery

 • Exceptional Presentation

How to think like a journalist and reverse engineer their dream interview to tip the scales in your favor and reach a bigger audience.

How to avoid the dreaded "Don't-Invite-Back" list and get yourself onto the "Expert Guest" list where journalists come seeking you out, instead of you tirelessly chasing them.

Personalized Media Training from a
20-Year 
Veteran Journalist and Network News Anchor

My door into the news world opened when I was just 18 years old and landed in the newsroom of The Hamilton Spectator. 

Hooked into the news cycle from then on, I've since worked in the newsrooms of the biggest national media companies including Global News, TSN, Sun News, and most recently CTV News.

I’ve been trusted to interview some of the most high-profile newsmakers and prominent influencers, including prime ministers, business leaders, athletes, environmentalists, artists, and celebrities.  

Then in 2020, I experienced firsthand how the pandemic forever impacted the way news is gathered and consumed, and how the industry has changed.

I’ve been on the other side of a lot of interviews and seen countless speakers, and what’s become clear is everyone has something valuable to share, but doesn't always know how. 

 

With the right guidance and coaching, anyone can become a more impactful communicator. 

That’s what led me here. 

If you’re aligned with my mission to help people share their stories, I’d love to chat!
