    Tony and the team at Good Talent Media have been fantastic to work with in assisting us to develop our crisis community strategy. Their approach is unique and from our experience has allowed us to think in ways we have previously not.

    Very Professional and Experienced. Tony was particularly helpful for me, to understand the needs of Corporate Media Training. It's much more than just confidence in front of a camera! I recommend Good Talent.

    Tony developed an insightful, professional, engaging and fully tailored training session for our senior management team, which was very well received. Not only did Tony hone our teams’ skills when talking to the media, he also challenged our current crisis communications practices and social media in particular. His contribution has placed us in a great position to better deal with the media moving forward. The entire Buller Ski Lifts management team will not hesitate in recommending Tony for any media training and crisis communication workshops.

    Thank you again for working with me yesterday. I went into our training session feeling overwhelmed. Now, I feel much more confident about my abilities and how I can better help prepare others for media interviews. It is not an exaggeration to say that this session was the missing piece in my development as a professional in my field and, perhaps, our organisation as a thought leader in our space. I cannot thank you enough for that.

    Media exposure presents an excellent opportunity if handled correctly. Otherwise it can go badly wrong or present inconsistent messages and damage your brand. Good Talent Media provided our directors and executive an excellent balance of theory and practical with their half day training session, if I had to fault it, then I’d say we should have invested in a full day. Tony Nicholls and his cameraman made everyone feel at ease and really able to maximise the benefits from the session. We did scenarios around a good news story, crisis management and touched on maximising social media. I’d highly recommend Good Talent Media for any media or PR development needs.

    Tony and the team at Good Talent were first-class operators right from the beginning. The expert insight, clear communication, guidance and genuine support of our business was fantastic. We are very happy with our final product and look forward to working with Good Talent again in the future.

    Tony’s in-depth knowledge and experience in the media industry reverberated with the Mount Hotham Management team and exposed us to new skills to prepare us for external media confrontation. He took us through a step-by-step process to develop and refine key points and messages in both positive news stories and crisis situations.

    The group walked away feeling more confident and having a much stronger understanding of how to prepare for media on camera and in the social media environment.

    I would recommend Tony’s media training workshops for dealing with all aspects of media.

    Good Talent Media provided excellent public relations advice and support to Wintringham when we launched our supported accommodation service in Dandenong for older people and their adult children with disabilities.

    They developed a high level communications strategy and achieved great media coverage for us on ABC TV news, The Age and local newspapers. As part of ongoing communications support they redesigned our staff newsletter and worked with our local services to achieve media coverage for events and activities. All of this helped improve our brand both externally and internally. The positive coverage in local papers attracted new supporters and donors to our organisation.

    I would highly recommend Good Talent Media for any organisation that wants to promote their brand and gain positive media coverage and community support.

    Good Talent Media’s training workshop was a highly engaging session that was exceptionally well run. Tony is a true subject matter expert who’s generous with sharing his extensive knowledge. I’ve come away with comprehensive, practical strategies for preparing for interviews and ensuring I communicate my message to my audience.

    I would highly recommend Tony Nicholls and Good Talent Media for their outstanding public relations services. They helped the ICV get unprecedented positive press our recent Victorian Open Mosque Event. We were very worried about getting the usual negative press, but instead with Tony’s guidance and contacts we received great coverage from the ABC, SBS and 3AW. Good Talent Media worked closely with a variety of stakeholders to create an achievable media plan, while also preparing us for potential crisis situations.

    They treat you like you’re their only client. You can really rely on them to deliver. It was a hands down great experience.
