Janine in Action


Janine Lazarus Media Consultancy (JLMC) offers customised training programmes and interactive workshops that equip delegates with the confidence they need to engage effectively with the media. JLMC works closely with each and every client to determine their specific needs, public profile and media angles before facilitating a workshop. Janine personally performs in-depth research before training to determine the delegates’ positions and how it relates to the company’s risks that can lead to potential media crises.
