Media Coaching

Helping you build your reputation on air

Your reputation depends on how you are perceived, and radio, print and TV are all channels that create and maintain the image of you and your brand.

Delivering a message confidently on TV or radio is an essential business skill, and the benefit to your business can be huge. If you perform well, you will be seen as trusted and reliable, and will win more customers as a result. You can learn essential media skills in a short time, giving you a significant competitive advantage.

I offer a range of courses and services to help companies and individuals present themselves more effectively in print, on radio and on TV. Courses can be held in-house, or in actual radio and TV studios, giving an experience as close as possible to the “real thing”, with experienced media journalists interviewing you and providing guidance. All courses are tailored to fit your requirements.

“I look forward to interviewing the graduates of Alan’s courses”

– Michael Wilson, Former Business Editor, Sky News


How you will benefit:

  • Being confident to handle any type of interview
  • Knowing how to handle tough questions
  • Knowing how to create and deliver a core media message

“I learned more in three hours about TV and radio interviews, than all my preceding media training put together, and then some!

Interestingly, it has also clarified how I can use planned key messages to shape and demonstrate the strength of arguments and convictions in my wider communications at work; that is going to be a tremendous help. I promise I will never again live in fear of radio interviews!”

– Alison Griffin, Head of Sales & Marketing, Harrogate Exhibition Centre
