For the UK economy and the financial industry that supports it all roads currently lead to Brexit. While predictions vary wildly, the uncertainty around inflation, interest rates, trade and spending is fertile ground for those spokespeople with a firm position and a strong voice.

We’ve delivered courses for over 100 companies within the finance sector including over 45% of the FTSE100 and are exceptionally proud of the high level of repeat business from these organisations.

What Media First clients in your sector say


Media First has provided Barclaycard with media training since 1997.  In that time, it has delivered first class support to senior executives. The use of professional studios and journalists gives participants a real flavour and understanding of the media world and what journalists are after. The comments we receive back from our staff tell us this is one of the most beneficial training courses they attend.

Mark Gonnella, Director of External Affairs, Barclaycard. 


Annually we ask an independent company to analyse the media’s view of our press office, including our spokespeople, and Nationwide comes top in its sector for having knowledgeable spokespeople and giving access to them. Without the great training provided by Media First we would not have been confident enough to put them out there with the media.

Michelle Slade, Media Relations Manager, Nationwide.


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 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.
