The webinar will feature media training tips for media trainers from longtime ARC member Daren Williams. Daren began media training clients in the throes of crisis in the late ’90s during his time at FleishmanHillard in Kansas City.

For several years at FH he led a monthly session at the Pioneer Hi-Bred Carver Center media training researchers to talk about the safety of biotech crops and other issues. He went on to lead spokesperson development for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, training farmers, ranchers, chefs, dietitians, medical doctors, scientists and other subject matter experts on behalf of the beef checkoff.

Daren will share his tips for conducting effective media training for food and ag spokespeople, regardless of their skill level or lack of experience!
