Media Training

We live a world where one conversation to a trade journalist on the phone in the morning can lead to an online article by Midday with your quote, out of context, as the headline. By lunchtime, an online national newspaper could have followed the article up leading to a drive time discussion on a national radio programme by the afternoon. By the evening, a few international newswires could have cut and paste the story leading to hundreds of different versions of the story around the world. Your phone by now could be ringing off the hook with media bids from national and international TV stations. And the next morning you will wake to see what the print editions say.

Our people have helped CEOs, high ranking civil servants, senior figures in NGOS as well as lawyers face the media with confidence. They have also media trained Foreign Office staff and business leaders all over the world. They have run sessions in Beijing, St Petersburg, Budapest, Lisbon, Rio de Janiero, Prague, Dubai, Helsinki, Singapore, Paris, Abu Dhabi, Geneva, Frankfurt, Madrid, Brussels and Tokyo.

We will tailor a session to your needs; whether it is help with broadcast TV and radio, newspapers and magazines, trade publications or dealing with online and social media.
