You're in the news. Actually you are the news. Now what?
Despite the ever increasing attention and importance of social media, classic media relations remains a vital part of corporate or brand reputation.
Media today report globally and the news is seen instantly by customers, shareholders, employees and other important constituents.
The on-the-firing-line, hands-on media experience of Torrenzano executives sets the firm apart. For example, the firm's president was spokesman for the USAF's Strategic Air Command. The firm's chief executive was, for nearly a decade, chief spokesman for The New York Stock Exchange during market crashes, meltdowns and an array of scandals.
With Torrenzano’s comprehensive media training program an executive’s 15 minutes of fame won’t become their 15 minutes of shame. They learn to deliver messages and take control of a media interview, whether at a news conference, the hot seat of a TV show, a desk side briefing or battling through a crisis.
The firm participates in many media organizations, including the National Press Club and Foreign Press Association.
