Ayr Rugby Academy media training
Laura Hamilton, a media trainer and freelance writer, has worked with school children, university students, graduates and employees from international companies on how to present themselves professionally in on-camera interviews, job interviews, meetings and press conferences.
As well as giving tips and advice on how to appear confident and natural in front of the camera, Laura also spent time discussing the perils and pit-falls of social media and how people can use it responsibly.
The boys then conducted video interviews with Ayr RFC media co-ordinator Elena Hogarth before holding a mock press conference, with academy director Stuart Fenwick taking on the role of journalist and asking the boys some difficult on-the-spot questions.
The academy players enjoyed the afternoon and thanked Laura for her help and assistance.
