Owning the mic


Your media appearance is a perfect opportunity

You want to become better at speaking to the media. You want to switch from being on the defensive and let the media work for you. At media moments that matter, you want to:

  • Convey your message powerfully and in a relaxed manner (more me)
  • Say something besides ‘no comment’ (more something)
  • Reach the right audience – the people at home – with your message (more you)

Those three elements add magic to communication. You need that magic to make a real difference.

“It usually takes more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.”
Mark Twain

The media: your platform

A media appearance is perfect setting for (organizational) storytelling. Most traditional media trainings teach you not to say what you mean. Not us. We believe that every fair question deserves a fair (and honest) answer. You and your organization benefit much more from an effective media appearance. Do you want to use your media appearances to the maximum to convey your message powerfully? Then this is the course for you!

The training

We guarantee a 100% camera free training. We believe that using a camera makes everyone a poorer speaker. Camera analysis causes you to notice things that other people don’t even see. We believe you should focus on getting your story across as powerfully as possible and not on irrelevant issues such as the tone of voice or how you move your hands.


Pick a date!

You will be called within 24 hours to schedule the first two sessions!

Intake interview

During a personal intake with your Speech Republic coach, we identify your ambitions and wishes for your media appearance. You receive an assignment to complete before the first session, so we can get straight to work !

Two individual sessions

During each session, you discover where the power of your story lies and how to increase your chances of magic during the media appearance. You do this by using our basic principle: more me, more you and more something.

We work on your core message and determine the most impactful way to formulate it. You learn to engage your audience and to stay strong and convincing during tougher media appearances. The sessions will be held in our training theater in The Hague or Amsterdam.


You receive personal feedforward after each session. This written individual feedback recognizes the steps you have taken as a speaker. . You can also use it as ‘homework’ for the next session.


We offer a one hundred percent satisfaction guarantee. No cure, no pay.


We use our one-of-a-kind magic training method in this course:

  • We focus on your strengths and hidden talents to make you even more powerful. There’s a lot of room for personal feedback and attention. We look for the moments when you enjoy yourself and communicate from your inner strength.
  • You look for your own communication power.
  • All our courses are one hundred percent camera and actor free. We make sure that you can focus on what truly matters: making an impact on your audience.
  • We do not believe in tricks. We don’t care how high-pitched your voice sounds or how you move your hands.
  • You get challenging assignments that offer insights into your (hidden) capabilities. You will research your own personality and discover what works best for you.
  • You will spend a lot of time on stage, because that’s where it all happens. It doubles the speed of your progress.
  • You are in the spotlights. There are very few abstract theoretical lessons, the focus is on discovering your qualities and enjoying yourself on stage.
