Media Firsts team of tutors never fail to get the most out of our spokespeople which in turn offers us, the communications team, the reassurance we need when putting people forward for interview. We've used Media First for a variety of courses and no matter what seniority the delegates are the course is always well tailored, effective and enjoyable.
Louise Robertshaw, Head of Communications and Campaigns, The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association
The Media First trainers pitched our training day perfectly: there was a good balance of ‘theory’ and practical and the interview sessions really made sense in putting into practice what we had learnt and understood. They were also so positive, enthusiastic and constructive in their feedback which was great. We really felt that the day was built around our individual requirements, skills and needs. It didn’t feel like a ‘template’ day rolled out and made to fit.
Anna Perkins, Marketing Communications Manager, Equifax
Media First provided us with an excellent service from the outset, guiding us through the creation of our first video as a firm and reassuring us with their capable management of the entire filming and production process. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to others looking to produce quality video in a timely and cost effective manner with an end result which far exceeded our expectations.

Media First has provided excellent training for our spokespeople at Cancer Research UK. The trainers are experienced journalists and broadcasters who explain how TV, radio and newspapers work and demonstrate the best ways of getting our messages successfully across in a wide range of media outlets.
Sally Staples, Senior Press Office Manager, Cancer Research UK
Media First offer a professional service and always tailor their courses to our specific needs. Their trainers are active journalists which makes these practical sessions as close to real life as possible. We always have a good experience.
Stuart Williamson, Head of Media Relations (Corporate), Nationwide Building Society
Media First delivered a tailored training session for our leadership team. The trainers were of a high calibre and the session was pitched well for a senior audience. It was a good mix of practical, hands-on exposure to media situations, with well-judged and precise feedback to the delegates.
Anna Thame, Head of External Affairs and Communications, Hampshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
As always, the course was excellent. The trainers did a great job keeping the pace and energy levels up and all the participants really enjoyed learning new skills – I now look forward to getting them in front of the camera/microphone!
Mark Davison, Head of Media Relations, Stansted Airport
Media First provided an excellent day of bespoke media training for our Communications team. The trainers on the day were fantastic, their experience shone through and all of the team came away with increased confidence in not only speaking to the media, but also in public speaking.
James Durant, Press and Public Affairs Officer, UCAS
We have been working with Media First since 2004. In that time they have always provided us with first class media training. Their tutors are excellent and their practical approach to the sessions means that all of our spokespeople are properly prepared for any media interview. In my opinion they are the best in the business.
