Media Coaching and Training
Do your knees quake at the thought of a media interview? Once you’ve been coached by Cynthia, your knees won’t quake and you will be able to deliver your messages. Cynthia has been on both sides of the camera and the pen. She was a print reporter for newspapers in Pennsylvania and Virginia before focusing her attention on media and public relations for a variety of organizations. Cynthia offers both one-on-one coaching and training for groups. She will prepare you to respond when the media calls and will walk you through various scenarios.
“I’ve worked with Cynthia on a handful of crisis communications events. She always provides clear, quick direction and smart, strategic counsel. I also have the unique perspective of seeing Cynthia train colleagues and others about crisis communications in a variety of settings. She spoke to more than 150 people at PRSA’s Richmond chapter about communications following Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Her anecdotes were vivid and the crowd walked away with easy-to-understand tips and techniques they could use in a crisis situation.”

The Brand of You
Cynthia helped a global organization rebrand. She’s also rebranded herself from a journalist to a PR practitioner to a coach. She knows that a key aspect of one’s career is one’s personal brand, and she wants to help you set yourself apart. Cynthia will help you understand what your personal brand says about yourself and how you can enhance your brand — and your career.
“I was delighted when Cynthia agreed to share her experience with personal branding at the Virginia Professional Communicators Conference. She was well prepared, engaged with the audience and made the topic relevant to those in attendance by providing clear examples of her points. Cynthia is a professional in everything she does, so I was not surprised that she is also a polished speaker. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will be glad they did!”
~ Gail Kent, The Buzz Factoree
Cynthia came late to social media, but once she did, she was all in. While she continues to pitch and place stories with newspapers, magazines and television stations, she appreciates that social media platforms provide an extra layer — engagement.
“Cynthia Price is an outstanding presenter who headlined a successful Social Media Workshop Media Network Idaho hosted. Her presentation was fast-paced and right on target for her audience. MNI was fortunate to be able to book her for a second presentation the following year and many attendees participated again, anxious to hear another insightful presentation. They were not disappointed.”
