She answered every question I had about how to handle media requests, and how to prepare yourself for any live or recorded interview. I learned more in 60 minutes with her than the last 7 years since I founded my non-profit."

"I had the pleasure of being both personally coached by Ginella Massa and participate in her media training workshop. She has expert knowledge on how to present yourself in media and is able to very eloquently break it down to folks who have had limited interaction with mainstream media. She provided effective tips and strategies on both delivering and reinforcing my main message, no matter the questions. Most importantly, she taught me to take control the narrative, which I never knew I could do. I would highly recommend Ginella as your go to person for any media and training needs."
