See Gayl Murphy “The Celebritizer” IN ACTION! Then, Invite Her Speak At Your Conference, Seminar, Workshop or Other Event!



“Gayl is a speaker with real life experience. She’s a sought-after Hollywood correspondent, celebrity interviewer, media expert, author and speaker. I’ve taken workshops on how to pitch to the media before, but none comes close to what Gayl Murphy teaches. Every moment was filled with ‘I’ve got to write that down’ information, and what she coaxed out of us was nothing short of miraculous.” — Kara Oh, WomenSharingSolutions.com

When the going gets tough, the tough use the media!

With the explosion in media, it seems like everyone with experience and expertise is being booked for interviews and commentary these days on TV, radio, print and online. Will you, and your group of professionals, be ready to step up to the microphone when your big break comes? Does your team have what it takes to “talk to the camera” and “tell it to sell it” to the media, or a key decision maker about your latest business venture, product, service, CD, movie, book, or accomplishment? If you can’t tell their own story, who can, and who will?

Gayl’s content-driven, lively and interactive “Interview Tactics!” seminars, speaking gigs and workshops prepare attendees to pitch the media, use the media, network like a Rock Star, go one-on-one with an interviewer, the press, or any pivotal decision-maker to give that killer inner-view …and not get clobbered in the process!

“Interview Tactics!” is one of the San Francisco Examiner’s TOP 20 BUSINESS BOOKS of 2010. Asking entrepreneurs to “identify business books have made such an impact, that you found so profound, it changed the way you do business. The books that were powerful tools for you to build, develop and grow your business.”

Award winning Hollywood correspondent Gayl Murphy has done over 15,000 celebrity interviews in her news and interviewing career – and she knows better than anyone “ya got to tell it to sell it,” that being interviewed is a give and take process. Murphy will teach you what to give and what to take!
