Media Relations in the 21st Century

When the media spotlight shines and social media pounces, the stakes are high. The Tantalus Group’s expert media relations experts have prepared hundreds of global executives for a variety of media interview situations. We work closely with C-suite executives, corporate affairs and communications professionals, and high potential leaders.

Television interviews — whether in-studio or on-location — are high-pressure situations. Our trainers will help you to relax, display confidence and deliver killer sound bites in front of the camera.

Most stories in print will appear online, but not necessarily the other way around. Articles today require clarity and a concise story line or the reader will lose interest. We can help you deliver a crystal clear message even under a barrage of interview questions.

Social Media
Bloggers, vloggers and podcasters — these are the new influencers and they may offer a trusted channel to your audience. Yet these types of interviews can be unpredictable and tricky to navigate. We can help you stay on message even as you engage in a lively dialogue.

Beyond the interview, The Tantalus Group monitors and provides reports on trends, metrics, analytics and the changing face of sentiment. Information is power and we help our clients use data to prepare for the interview in advance and understand how media coverage impacts reputation.
