After he wrote Winning with the News Media in 1984, Jones left a remarkable reporting career to create the consulting firm. The bulk of his business is seminars for small groups of executives in both government and private industry.
He also does a lot of one-on-one coaching, using videotape to polish personal skills for:
When a correspondent from 60 Minutes or 20/20 knocks on your door, the panic sets in. That's when he's often called in to help manage the media crisis. And ease the fear.
For group training, Winning with the News Media is the textbook for the class. It contains all of the core information on media relations strategy, personal skill, and inside information on how the media really work.
The typical workshop begins with about two hours of PowerPoint slides and video clips to teach the basics:
Then hypothetical media situations are passed out, custom-tailored to fit the group.
The class becomes the command staff, debating -- and then deciding -- the best strategy for dealing with the media problem. Members of the class are chosen to role-play that strategy, on camera.
There is instant replay, and constructive criticism for those who've been in the hot seat.
Sometimes, Clarence makes suggestions for how to do it better. A portion of the situation is taped again, so the class can see the difference. Those who've been on camera can decide which technique works best for them.
In virtually every workshop, someone says:
"This is the best training I've ever had."
