Strategic Media Training can teach you how to make the most of every opportunity, win support, cement yourself as go-to talent and bring a crisis under control.

Our media trainings are developed from a comprehensive catalogue of lessons based on our real experience as journalists, each with more than 20 years-experience, and practical  understanding of how the media operates now.

ThinkBox Media Trainings are robust and empowering, designed to leave you with real skills to tackle the issues and opportunities you know are brewing and those you never see coming.


"Having dealt with Sandra Di Girolamo for many years I was aware of the sharp news sense and innate story-telling ability that has made her one of Australia’s leading journalist-producers. So when it came to turning clients of The PR Collaborative into awesome media talent, I knew Sandra was the secret weapon we needed. Her understanding of what it takes to be topical and relevant, combined with practical tips and techniques for achieving messaging cut-through has given our clients from a variety of business and non-profit organisations a real media edge. "
