Every Executive Can Benefit from Media Training

Melody Kimmel has coached countless experts—including CEOs, scientists and celebrities—to tell their stories with skill and confidence.

Before starting her firm, MK Media Training, Melody spent many years in the communications industry - as a journalist, corporate marketer and agency PR executive. During that time, she coached countless experts, from B2B CEOs to scientists, authors and celebrities. With Melody’s guidance, these professionals learned how to tell their stories with skill and confidence.
