Thanks in large part to excellent coaching provided by Davia Temin, I recently came through quite successfully in one of the most difficult interviews I’ve faced in my many years in media relations and communications. In her preparation work with me – by asking smart questions and listening carefully to my answers – Ms. Temin skillfully identified the message points and delivery style that would work best for me personally and for the institution I represent. My belief in the message we devised together made it so much easier for me to do my best on camera, under tough questioning, on the day of the interview. Davia helped me identify potential pitfalls and effective phrasing for my key points. We worked on body language and simple tricks that help one come across effectively on television. I could see all of the detailed preparation paying off in spades as the stressful interview unfolded. For anyone facing a challenging interview with the potential to cause harm to his or her organization – or to bring great benefits, for that matter – there is no one better to have in your corner than Davia Temin.”
