This Train runs on YOUR time!

FRMediaTrain can customize a training schedule to an individual or group of any size. Step one is to assess the needs, abilities and opportunities of the possible participants. After that, we’ll break down all the pertinent information and tactics we’ve gathered and deliver them in a manner that best serves each attendee.

Training sessions come in every size. intimate for key leaders or large “all hands” events. We can also tailor the time spent on each specialty to your exact business needs. From basic media skills and crisis communications to preparing whole teams for an upcoming launch event, all of our content is delivered within the context of your business.
