Media Training and Coaching
The Perfect Way to Prepare
Would you like to tell your story to the media or in a video recording (testimonial) in a confident manner? Media training and coaching is the perfect way to prepare for that. As a scientist, doctor/specialist, businessman, policymaker, director, manager, organiser, etc., the right preparation is essential for letting your voice be heard to the modern-day media world, whether it’s as an individual, or collectively as an institution, school, discipline or department.
Media training and individual media coaching is offered in both Dutch and English and is also accessible to participants outside of Maastricht University.

Combination of camera exercises, practical examples and theory, focused on formulating content and presentation, how news media function.
Have you been asked to feature in a TV interview or (company) video? Then be sure to do a Media Interview Check beforehand!
In two hours, the Media Interview Check will equip you with the necessary skills to successfully perform for television or camera. It doesn’t matter whether it’s for a public news program or an internal (company) video, the Media Interview Check focuses on the content of your message and the way in which you present it, both verbally and non-verbally. Exercises are video recorded and discussed afterwards. The Media Interview Check can be carried out at your company or at the UM. Costs are EUR 295,- (exclusive VAT for non UM/MUMC+).
The Media Interview Check is offered continuously, if desired in the shortest possible time.
Anyone who appears on TV or in a company video for an interview or a few statements should do the Media Interview Check. Within a relatively short time frame and for a low price, you will get maximum results. Guaranteed. These days, a lot of money and time is put into visual communication, including company and all other kinds of videos. I have found that the intended goal is not often achieved due to a lack of preparation in terms of content and presentation. This immediately shows during a broadcast or publication. It is often a reason for viewers to stop watching. The Media Interview Check offers an accessible and adequate solution to this problem.”
