Media Coaching

WAT's Adventuress in Chief Karen Loftus has spent several years onstage as a solo performer, an award-winning playwright, and ten+ years as an international comedian. When she took a break from performing and fell into travel and lifestyle writing, she put on the page what she once put onstage.

Having since written 1,000's of articles for well over 100 media outlets worldwide, WAT's Karen Loftus continues to be media savvy both on the stage as a sought-after speaker and on the page as a writer and works in many mediums.

If you suddenly find yourself on camera, on your social media, or for media engagements on TV, radio, or podcasts selling yourself or your business and feel in need of a media tweak, we can work with you on that. Be it the big or small screen, for speaking engagements, in-house or on the road, for business presentations, Zooms, or boardrooms. Whatever the case, it all boils down to telling a great story, and if an excellent performance accompanies it, all the better.  

Karen pulls on her theatrical background as a performer, award-winning playwright, Tennessee Williams Fellow, and international comedian, going beyond branding and strategy to dive deeper into character coaching and story development. The transformation for you and your brand can be massive and immediate with quantifiable results. 

If you want punching up, personal messaging, relatability, relevance, or more entertaining or meaningful messaging and outstanding performance to drive it all home, we would love to talk to you, as that is our wheelhouse. We love a great show, a real, raw, and relatable one, and so do your customers and audience. So, let's make sure you've got one.
