IRRI holds training course on media skills for senior professionals

The Media Skills Training (MST) for senior professionals was held for IRRI staff on 19-20 March at headquarters.

MST is a two-day workshop that helps the individual to take control of media “transaction” through intense re-working of preparations and delivery techniques. It also enables participants to devise a robust strategic position that can be delivered in any media situation, perform in a more confident and comfortable way in front of reporters, microphones and cameras, and recognize how their voice and body language can help or hinder a media performance.

The training was attended by Vina Alvarez,  Andy Nelson, Flor Palis, Alvaro Pamplona, Gina Zarsadias, Lilia Molina,  Grace Centeno, Govinda Rizal, Rosa Paula Cuevas, Shanta Karki, Eugene Castro Jr., Nadia Viera CastaƱeda, and Ma. Carmelita Alberto.

The program was facilitated by Dan Baker and Andy Hitchcock of Broadcast Media Services, UK.
