Preparing you for contact with the media, be it radio, television or the press, is our business, and it has been for over 30 years. In that time we have developed a range of practical media training techniques and courses that use experienced professionals, such as practising journalists, to explain how the media works and to allow individuals to cope with its demands. We have worked with press and communication teams alongside their spokespeople in over forty different sectors.
Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about the training we have delivered in your sector. Our media training courses work because they are realistic and authentic, with a practical, structured approach:
Content: Saying what needs to be said
Delivery: Saying it well, and with assurance
Control: Saying all that is needed, but no more
And that means not simply using practising professionals - journalists and technicians who know the media, and who may be working in a news studio one day and ours the next, but those rare journalists who are also talented teachers and coaches.
Our television and radio studios in Berkshire are broadcast quality, but dedicated wholly to media training, and the needs of our clients alone - so are available for as long as needed – without pressure or interruption. Individually designed to meet your specific requirements, all our programmes give you consistency and control, and we can also help hone and enhance communication skills further with refresher or advanced training.
So, should the real thing happen, in the media, the office or even the boardroom, you will always be in control – clear, credible and confident.

“I would definitely recommend Media First’s training to others. Our trainers were friendly, enthusiastic and professional and all of our group found the day really useful, no matter how much previous interview experience each person had. The day was well structured with lots of discussion and practical exercises and the trainers took care to ensure each person set goals of what they wanted to achieve and that these were met by the end of the day.”
