TESTIMONIALS

Jay managed a media training session for key leaders and staff at the Melbourne Rebels. During a week where our club was in the middle of a media firestorm, Jay facilitated an outstanding session which provided quality advice. Jay was able to understand the group quickly, build trust and educate on strategies for the different types of media mediums we were exposed to.

Jay does not talk out of a text book, and he has the ability to articulate his vast experiences and provide excellent examples of media situations that related to other sports. Jay educated the group on body language, what makes you comfortable, preparation, importance of the truth, knowledge and conversation. The Melbourne Rebels players took away some key strategies around changing the direction of the conversation, utilising praise to their peers and the media, being authentic and damage minimisation.

Reece Hodge attended Jay’s media session and provided feedback that he felt very confident the following day at a high pressured press conference before a crucial game at a time when the media wanted to focus on the Club’s ongoing existence.

I recommend Jay extremely highly. He listens well, thinks on his feet and provides a sense of purpose and calmness to those that he is talking to. I look forward to exposing Jay to more members of our team and continuing to up skill the leadership group and staff.

Jay has become a regular feature of our media training courses for scientists. Scientists assume that there’s no room for them in talk radio. Jay gently but firmly puts them on the right track, demonstrating they do have stories that work for radio. His curiosity and his passion for radio shine through.
And he’s got a great radio voice. You could listen to him all day.

The bad producers have been an incredible partner throughout the Game Changers: Radio project. There is no way the idea would have seen the light of day, let alone become such a success, without their drive and passion.
The thing I love most about working with Jay and Astrid is that they care so much about the quality of the product, it feels like I’m in a true partnership with them.

At Inverleigh Media, we have worked closely with Jay Mueller since the start of 2015 across many of our international television projects, including our Olympic preview program ‘Guide To The Games’ and our weekly Combat/MMA program ‘Total Combat’.
 
We have found Jay to be a most creative, capable and reliable voice talent who has now cemented himself as an important part of our business. He is generous with his time and ideas and always comes through when required, even at short notice or tight deadlines.
 
Jay’s communication style makes him an excellent collaborator and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
