Media First: Globe Trotters

This year has started with a whoosh for Media First. We do hundreds of tailored training courses across the UK each year ­ many at our clients offices and many more at our own radio and TV studios in Reading. But what some of you may not realise is that we are also privileged to fly all over the world to deliver our training. Last year we delivered over 20 courses abroad for our clients. These were delivered in 14 different countries including Holland, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Russia, Norway, Poland, Denmark, Canada, Spain, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Ireland.

As the cold snow of January envelopes the UK one Media First employees is having a somewhat different experience whilst media training in Brunei.


Having been out there since 5th January and staying on until the 12th February our full time camera technician Paul Horton is making the country his home from home as he and two of our experienced journalist tutors deliver over 20 days of tailored media and communications training. To help brighten up your Thursday morning we thought you might like to see some inspirational shots from the country that is currently our second home.
