Barbara quickly and eloquently gives you the right tools to shine. She has an eye for your strengths and will elevate the level of your presentation within minutes!
Wow - Barbara Laskin is incredible! With direct clarity she pointed out exactly where I needed to improve and explained the reasoning each time. Now, I don't just have improved presence during interviews, I also have a set of tools that I can use over and over again. Such a pleasure to work with such a dedicated and knowledgeable expert. Looking forward to the next time I learn from her expertise!
Barbara Laskin's results are off the charts! One of the clients I sent her is Japanese. Doing interviews or making speeches in English is a real challenge for him, even though he is brilliant and has been given a highly visible position in a global organization where he has no choice but to fulfill those kinds of public obligations. In one day of media training Barbara transformed him as a spokesperson. He thanked me profusely and called her training "magical." Happy client, happy life! Thank you Barbara!
Barbara provided media training for two of our recent non-scripted series, Preachers' Daughters and Bring It!. Both series dealt with sensitive issues that could be hot button topics with press and Barbara's training was immensely helpful for both casts. For Preachers' Daughters, Barbara had the challenge of training a large group of about 10 and everyone walked away with confidence and tips that helped them navigate upcoming press interviews. For Bring It, Barbara had a one-on-one training with our star that touched on a very personal matter from her past, which was handled professionally with insight and encouragement. Barbara's training is in-depth and well researched and we are thrilled to have her as a partner when media training new talent.
Laskin Media dropped everything and came to us during a significant Public Relations crisis. They helped us get our feet back on the ground. Without their excellent assistance, we could have had a great deal more difficulty.
Thank you Barbara. Your work with us during our daylong session was immediately valuable and constructive. We appreciate the energy you brought to us. The ease with which we are able to further review the video with your written evaluations was superb. We have seen improvement in the way we speak about our work, and more importantly, in the way we are received by our audience and clients
I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Barbara and Laskin Media on a number of speech-writing projects and training sessions and I can say that working with her made the difference between an ordinary presentation and an extraordinary one.
Barbara was terrific at preparing us for media interviews. She was encouraging, engaging and challenging, connecting with each of us and preparing us to become much more professional presenters. I recommend her highly.
Barbara Laskin is the consummate media trainer. She is extremely well prepared and has an insider's take on her subject. Barbara is skilled at asking both the tough and the thought-provoking questions. I've watched her turn an anxious, camera-shy client into a confident and effective spokesperson.
Barbara Laskin is fantastic. She helped me better my presentation skills, and I continue today to draw on what she taught me years ago. I've also engaged her to work with some of my clients to prepare them for media interviews. In every instance, her customized programs and messaging made the trainings more meaningful, and Barbara was thoughtful, prepared, professional, adaptable to the clients' changing needs and abilities during the training, and a delight to work with. I highly recommend her!
My training with Laskin Media exceeded my expectations. Every aspect of my one-on-one session increased the likelihood that I would be a success. The revisions to my speech made it infinitely better than what I had walked in the door with. It had been years since I last spoke in public and the training gave me the confidence to take command of my speech and deliver it in a powerful way. I couldn’t have asked for more!
Barbara has worked wonders with many of my clients, including A-list movie and television stars. After her intensive media training, celebrities are more cognizant that every word matters, and that effective communication skills are vitally important components of today’s marketing campaigns.
Laskin Media does their homework! Barbara Laskin has media trained our healthcare, fashion and publishing experts (who think they don’t need help). Her presentation style gives our clients confidence to answer the tough questions while conveying their message points in a clear, concise manner. Laskin Media is our “go to” resource for preparing influencers to make their point!
“It has been a pleasure working with Laskin Media over the years. Barbara has taught me how to be an effective and comfortable public speaker and her speeches are always 'spot-on'.”
The more time I spend working with your organization, the greater my admiration for your professionalism and expertise. Pierre, and everyone else I have worked with, have been knowledgeable, supportive and delightful. I have benefited greatly from your guidance and go forward with renewed confidence

The company delivered above and beyond our expectations...Customer focus is Barbara’s hallmark – she has superb follow-through, cares about the people she works with, wants them to succeed and seems to enjoy the whole process – thus making it enjoyable for all.
I would like to thank you for helping prepare me for my keynote address. While I had done some speaking in the past, it was your formal training, writing assistance, various tips and confidence building that empowered me to deliver a well-received speech. I could not have done it without you.
Barbara Laskin is a pleasure to work with and delivered above and beyond my expectations. Her media training effectively taught key skills while the formal training, on-camera practice, post-analysis and tips made the experience well-rounded and superb. I highly recommend her and will be hiring her again soon.
