Leadership Network Media Training Hui

The Foundation is offering up to 15 places for Leadership Network members to attend a Media Hui in Wellington on 22 July 2017. This is an opportunity for participants to have some practical media training and gain confidence when talking to the media.

Am&Co will be facilitating the training day, which will be a highly energentic session combining the theory and the practice of how to manage and present your message to the media.

Focusing on building skills and confidence to ensure that core messages are delivered when the most extreme pressure comes on, the training will deliver new techniques and methods that will address delivery, content, presentation and empathy.

Participants will fly into Wellington where the Hui will take place over the course of one full day plus evening event. Participants will be expected to be well-versed in the Foundation’s key messages and have completed scenario preparation before the event.

All costs associated with attending the Media Hui (return economy travel, meals, planned activities, accommodation) will be met by the Asia New Zealand Foundation.

Participants will be responsible for getting to and from their local airport, and any other personal spending money.

Application process

To apply, please submit a one-page expression of interest, outlining the following:

  • what you want to learn from attending the hui
  • your media story.

Also required is a copy of your most recent curriculum vitae.

Applications should be emailed to Masina Taulapapa by 5pm Monday 15 May.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome within two weeks. Please note that participants will be expected to attend all days of the hui and participate in all activities.

Up to 15 places are available for network members based in New Zealand.
