Senate Estimates Training

Senate Estimates

Interview Skills Training

Senate Estimates hearings can be verbally combative and aggressive. This puts immense pressure on senior representatives and public servants. At Media Success, we help senior representatives and public servants better prepare for Senate Estimates hearings.

Coaching from award-winning journalist and radio and TV presenter, Greg Dyett, will help you stay on message during Senate Estimates hearings. Hearing preparation will also help you better articulate responses to questioning, even when under pressure.

How Senate Estimates Training Works

  • Addressing a Senate Estimates hearing is markedly different from regular public speaking. Nerves and lacking confidence can be seen as a sign of insincerity. Answering questions in the wrong way can also lead to unintended reputational damage.
  • At Media Success, we combine spokesperson and media interview skills training to ensure that public servants always maintain their composure during Senate Estimates hearings.
  • Capably prepare for tough and unexpected lines of questioning.
  • Learn how to control Senate Estimates hearing interviews to deliver a consistent message.
  • Rein in unintended controversy by understanding the consequences of unintended word choices.
  • Avoid unfavourable media coverage by learning how to handle post-hearing media interviews.
  • Make the right first impression by learning how to prepare and deliver a powerful opening statement.

Senate Estimates Simulation and Role Play

During Senate Estimates training, we stage on-camera question, answer, and interview simulations. Using instant playback and analysis, I will help you improve your body language and your ability to articulate responses to any line of questioning.

At Media Success, our prerogative is to help you maintain your composure and dignity even when under intense scrutiny. In the process, we help public servants speak with more gravitas and integrity.

Senate Estimates hearings can be confusing. This is especially true for first time hearing attendees. During training and preparation, Media Success will make sure that you fully understand the Senate Estimates hearing process.

During training, we will explain how Senate Estimates work and what protocols representatives and public servants are expected to adhere to. Following this, you will be able to prepare opening statements and question responses in-line with the expected order of proceedings.
