Media First was founded over 30 years ago

Initially, we specialised in media training before evolving to help our clients with their wider communications challenges. Today, although still called Media First, we are ultimately known as specialists in communications training.

Why? We live by what we teach. This means efficient responses to both internal and external enquiries and no jargon.
