Successfully engaging with the media is crucial in the 21st century. The Thomson Reuters Foundation helps governments, international agencies and civil society organisations to develop the right set of skills to talk with the media professionally and to make an impact . Our courses are customised to meet your needs. They are built around you, taking into account the international and domestic context in which your organization operates.

Our programmes are based on global best practice and use real-life situations to allow media professionals to get familiar with a range of different scenarios: from the writing a basic press release to the handling of a full-scale media crisis.

Corporate media training is also available. Revenues raised through this service are used to fund our philanthropic work in developing countries.
