Strategic Communications Offers Media Training on Sept. 13

Berkeley Lab’s Strategic Communications office is offering a free, on-site media training session on Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 10 a.m. to noon. The program is ideal for researchers and others who may need to speak to the news media or the public. The session includes a brief primer on working with the news media and why it’s important to properly communicate science in these challenging budget times, and will offer an opportunity to practice speaking on camera. The class is limited to six participants, so early registration is suggested. Lab Communications Manager Jon Weiner, a former CBS News producer, will lead the session; for more information, or to sign up, contact him at

    I’ve participated in a previous training session on this topic from Jon and recommend it to anyone who may speak to the public. Jon provides a great deal of information, guidance and real life coaching. I’m glad to see that he continues to offer this valuable training!
