TJ Walker All Access - The Ultimate Way to Become a Master Communicator, Speaker and Media Spokesperson

Course description

Imagine debating your local or national TV preacher or theocratic politician on TV or radio and winning! You can look comfortable on TV, deliver a clear and understandable message, and speak in memorable sound bites. You can communicate your secular activist principles and worldview to the media and to the nation.

Currently, the forces against secular thinking are better at controlling and even owning the media. That's why they define the terms of debate. But it doesn't have to be this way. a new generation of secular activists is speaking out and gaining massive coverage in the mainstream media. You can be a part of this at the local or even national level.

Communicating through the media isn't just about money or looks or power. There are basic skills that anyone can master in order to make yourself more attractive, more interesting and more quotable to the media. This course will teach you exactly how to do this.

TJ Walker is a highly experienced media trainer and the author of numerous books and online training programs. he is also a secular activist who has appeared on national TV and radio thousands of times battling the Promise Keepers and other anti-secular organizations and causes.
