What We Do
Our passion is helping people put their thoughts into words – whether they’re on the page or out loud.
We have ten year’s experience training people to become clear, concise and engaging interviewees. We have worked with everyone from blue chip companies to freelance creatives.
Our background is in BBC broadcasting. We have worked at every level, from national reporting to editing in-depth documentaries.
We know how to pitch the right news line to the right journalist, because we have had years of experience having PRs try to sell us stories.
Presenting and Public Speaking
We’ve worked with TV presenters and CEOs, building their confidence, charisma and ability to think on their feet in public.
