Successful media interviews for business leaders & financial professionals

Specialist media interview training For business leaders and financial professionals. Tailored coaching for TV, radio, online and print. Delivered at your venue or my London, UK training studio

Proven track record Experience of almost every subject and sector over the past 27+ years. From crisis communications to business takeovers, flotations to product recalls

Clarity, confidence and competence An authentic, clearly articulated message with interviews delivered in a "conversational style" that just "feels right"

Genuinely different Quick, effective and in-tune with modern audiences and the modern media. No fluff, no nonsense, just powerful results

Delivering distinctive leadership personalities Free of the "too polished, media-trained" personas that often dominate business interviews and irritate an increasingly cynical audience

Enhancing your brand in good times and bad I continually help many business leaders strengthen their brand profile with expert commentary to news programmes and documentaries
