"I consider them an extension of our senior management team."
We’ve worked with the Throughline team for more than a decade, and I attribute the dramatic rise in the quality of our presentations and media relations directly to their guidance. I continue to rely on them for their invaluable perspective on both the style and substance of my most essential communications and consider them an extension of our senior management team.
What lovely people are saying about us.
"Knocked it out of the park."
It’s always a gamble whenever we engage with a new training partner, but we were very impressed with your firm from the get-go and, by all accounts, Christina knocked it out of the park. The post-session reviews were overwhelmingly positive, which reinforced that we made the right decision to partner with you.
"We have since seen our trainees roll out the Throughline messaging approach across the team."
The training was fantastic and we have since seen our trainees roll out the Throughline messaging approach across the team. Christina was a strong session facilitator, media trainer and overall guide through this whole process. She delivered the training with professionalism and helped to further our communications goals.
“That was added value I did not expect!”
I would have been very happy walking away with techniques and tools that would better equip me for engagements with the media, but I quickly realized these techniques were very easily transferable to sales, internal company communications, and external presentations. That was added value I did not expect!
"Working with Throughline is an absolute joy."
Working with Throughline is an absolute joy. It is rare to find a corporate trainer that both provides substantive training for really, really smart people AND has an engaging personality. Our analysts have found media training extremely helpful and pertinent. Throughline does an excellent job of conducting thorough background research and facilitating a full day of practice exercises. Highly recommended!
"The lessons...were immediately impactful."
Throughline’s media training provided such a helpful and hands-on workshop for our team! Brad was extremely well-prepared and communicated effectively with our staff to better reach our team goals. The lessons he taught were immediately impactful, and each individual he worked with was impressed with his style, professionalism, and transferrable tips. We would highly recommend Throughline’s services to your organization.
"I knew we had made a great choice."
After the first session with Throughline Group, I knew we had made a great choice. Their skill, experience and knowledge about media interviews and general presentations was obvious and we benefit greatly from the training sessions we have with them.
"They made a palpable difference in my presentations"
Throughline goes well beyond speech coaching for leaders: they absorb and own the content, working with you in a personal way to deliver in the most genuine and impactful manner. They made a palpable difference in my presentations, from small meetings to packed audiences.
“My team told me repeatedly that this was the best money I’d spent all year."
My team told me repeatedly that this was the best money I’d spent all year, and I couldn’t agree more. Seeing the vast improvement in participants’ speaking skills over the course of just a few hours was remarkable. Even more remarkable is how they’ve all retained the information from our training several months later.
"Meaningful interactions and insights that transform organizations"
Throughline has a unique ability to understand ASN’s concerns, focus our training on the issues that matter most, and help the society’s leadership and staff improve in astonishing ways. More important, they’re committed to lasting relationships, resulting in meaningful interactions and insights that transform organizations.
"Easily one of the best investments we have made."
Our team members were very impressed by the tools, techniques and practice sessions that prepared them for more than just media interviews. They were able to use the same tools for their technical presentations, podcasts and sales communications. The training showed them how to identify what is important to the audience and not bury their key points in too much technical jargon. It is easily one of the best investments we have made when it comes to staff development.
"Prescribed that one medication that makes you feel so much better."
Sometimes you don’t know what is ailing you until someone prescribes that one medication that makes you feel so much better. Throughline did that for SEPTA employees. They checked the pressure of our messages and the temperature of our responses and found a way to reset our body language so that we can be more effective in how we communicate to our riders.
