We’re a niche media training, presentation training and crisis communications training consultancy. Based in London, we’ve been working across the UK and around the world since 1994.
Because we’re more agile and flexible than the larger media training companies we’re able to meet the exact needs of our clients.
The person you speak to, for instance, is the same person who develops and delivers your training. Our lower overheads also enable us to keep costs down. We use experienced, highly qualified media trainer/journalists working under strict confidentiality agreements to give participants realistic media interviews followed by detailed, constructive feedback. We’ve helped hundreds of organisations and individuals around the world since 1994 and we’d be very interested in working with you.

Leading global law firm
The team at Communicate Media really understand how lawyers think and appreciate the challenges they face when dealing with the media. Their training has given our lawyers a better understanding of what journalists are looking for and improved their ability to develop and convey key messages and tailor them to the appropriate audience. Communicate Media have also provided excellent one-to-one support after the training, ahead of key broadcast opportunities.
We chose Communicate Media because they were the only media training consultancy that clearly understood the world of luxury retailing. Simon Brooke has covered the subject extensively and he put together a course that exactly met our requirements. We liked the fact that our team was challenged during the role-play interviews but felt more confident to handle media interviews afterwards thanks to the tips and advice that they were given.
A full service creative communications agency based in London and Birmingham
During our many years working with Communicate Media we’ve always found their training to be practical and very much focussed on our clients’ individual needs. They’re flexible and respond quickly to our requests for a particular type of course. As well as their journalistic credentials, the Communicate team are great teachers. Our clients have also benefited from the post course support telephone service when they’ve needed a refresher on what they learnt during a course before a real life media interview.
One of the world's leading insurers
We’ve used Communicate Media to train a wide variety of our spokespeople over many years. We’ve always found them to be very responsive, flexible and most importantly approachable. The fact that the person we commission the course from is the one who actually delivers it is also a big plus. Also, their post course telephone support is invaluable for those spokespeople who have done a course but need a quick refresher ahead of an important media interview.
National Education Union
The UK’s largest education union
Communicate Media have been delivering training courses for us over many years. Not only are they flexible and cost effective but we appreciate the fact that the person we speak to about a course and our needs is the person who actually delivers it. This means that we get the course that we’ve commissioned. Our course participants also really benefit from using the BBC Broadcasting House studios.
