FosterHyland is based in Pittsburgh and can provide expert media training for organizations anywhere in the country. We work with Fortune 500 companies as well as for large and small not-for-profit organizations. Our clients - whose issues can span the globe - are given the tools and techniques to perform confidently in front of a camera or before a live audience.
We use a three-step process to guarantee the very best outcome for each of our clients. We want you to feel 100% prepared for any media situation.
FosterHyland uses personalized pre-workshop surveys to gauge our participant's requirements, level of experience and expectations.
We customize each workshop with interviews, video clips and role-playing exercises related to your unique needs and specific to your industry's challenges.
Our training sessions, ranging from one-on-one to small groups, are researched, prepared and conducted by a team of experts. We help clients feel confident in front of any audience and all forms of media. Some other media trainers may try to scare their clients with ambush interviews; our approach is to help you overcome your fear of the media with the knowledge and the confidence that you are prepared for any situation.

But they actually bring more… for media relations they present both the media side and the corporate public relations side of the business. I also value the way they listen to our needs and tailor their instruction for us. They don’t have a cookie-cutter approach."
