Will it work for YOU?

Well, if you're an athlete or coach and you want to start working in the media then this is for you. 

Equally, if you already have some media experience but you want to develop your skills (and learn some new ones) to ensure a more successful and longer career then this course is also for you.

In addition you will come away with more confidence, new life-skills, greater knowledge of the industry and a clearer picture of how and where to steer your career

What's on the course?

 

The 8 video-led lessons cover every aspect of being a great co-commentator or pundit.

  1. The Plan
  2. Identifying your role
  3. Backstage secrets 1 (skills & techniques)
  4. Creating your story & public persona
  5. Backstage secrets 2 (more skills & techniques)
  6. Storytelling
  7. Remote broadcasting & streaming
  8. An insider's top tips for continued success

I have carefully devised and constructed each lesson to reflect the quality and interaction of my face-to-face coaching sessions. 

Every lesson is interactive. As well as passing on my insider knowledge, my videos set regular challenges, tests and are supported by downloadable learning sheets. I use real-life video and podcast clips to emphasise best (and worst ;-) ) practise. 

Once signed up you can complete the course at your own speed wherever and whenever you please. So maximum flexibility.

What does Alec know anyway?

Fair question! You'll see from the video that I've worked for some of the world's top sports networks from Sky in the UK to Fox in the USA and ESPN in Asia.

This means I've shared studios and commentary boxes with lots of sportsmen and women - some great, most good and occasionally the not so good and I've learnt lessons from all of them - lessons I'll pass on to you during this course.

I'll also share insider knowledge by the bucket full. 

But can Alec coach?

I've been coaching since 2010 and not only athletes! I work with NATO, the British military, Universities and multi-national companies - which is a pretty wide coaching brief, don't you think?

What could I earn working in the media?

...in other words, will I get my money back from doing this course?

Simple answer; your first job should pay it all back, plus some!

A career as a co-commentator, pundit and studio analyst can be very lucrative depending on your profile and sport. We discuss this in more detail in the Sport2media course. 

I know I'm biased but I think this is an amazing career investment for any coach or athlete wanting to work in the media.

Don't take my word for it...
