Media Training – Workshops

Ideal for groups, these full- or half-day workshops explore basic concepts like why we need media training, how to craft stories and messages, the need for practice and simulated interviews for both TV and radio.

Individual and tailored training

Into the Studio
Whether you’re facing a communications crisis, or simply feel the need to strategise and rehearse content for a product launch, we can design a personalised solution to meet your needs.

Continuous training

Into the Studio
“No-one learnt to drive a car in a single lesson,” says Chris, “and it’s the same when dealing with the media. You need regular interaction with the trainer to embed the concepts and to get appropriate feedback on your progress.”

Excellent Presenter. Good trainer and sharp! I learned so much, the presentation was amazing. Very practical. I learned in a very well-managed environment.

I absolutely loved the talk you gave us and it made us put loose ends together. Things that have been troubling me started to make sense. I loved the big picture approach. What I took out of it is how emotional politics are and that regardless of who is in power, if certain variables are in place, our country will be a success.

I thought that Chris Gibbons did a superb job. He really made a huge difference to the mood and as is so typical of him, he raised some excellent questions to which it was a pleasure to respond.
