Growing up, I was 100% a theatre nerd. I performed in choral groups, and when I reached middle school, I couldn’t wait to join the drama club. My love of being on stage continued through high school and even into college, which is a shock to people who know me now. The older I’ve gotten, the more reserved I’ve become and I’m more likely to sit quietly taking everything in than trying to stand in the spotlight.

Some folks are great with others. Conversations come easily, and they’ve never met a stranger. It’s a wonderful trait to have and can be incredibly useful in both professional and personal situations. Wouldn’t it be awesome to be skilled at small talk? It’s not a trait everyone shares, though, and others may struggle through that same small talk and have more awkward conversations than they care to admit.

Which one are you?

We have clients that fall on both sides. Some are completely comfortable doing interviews with reports, and they breeze through speaking engagements. Charisma practically comes out of their pores. Luckily, for our clients who — like me — are a bit on the shyer side, we offer media training and related services to help them nail every interview.

While our plant-based public relations strategies might include content creation or media outreach, we also tuck in services that will help you prepare for whatever opportunity comes your way. Vegan might as well be a four-letter word for some, which can make it difficult to discuss sometimes. You might have to field tough questions or defend your position as a plant-based leader, but you don’t have to do it alone.

At Orange Orchard, we do our best to make sure our clients are prepared for public appearances and/or interview. We offer best practices from what to wear, what to say and even how to move. We know it can be nerve-wracking to speak publicly or sit through an interview. So, we do our best to make it as painless as possible because at the end of the day, those speaking engagements and media interviews will help boost your brand and spread your message.

If you could use some media training or could use a refresher to become even more comfortable in interviews or at speaking engagements, give us a call. Our media relations team will keep the opportunities coming in, and we’ll make sure you’re ready to tackle them. Call us today at 865-977-1973 and find out what we can do for you.
