Media and Presentation Training

During the current pandemic we’ve seen the importance of effective communication. Some people are naturally better at it than others but this is a skill you can learn.

As a former news anchor and journalist, as well as an experienced event moderator, I can help you focus your messages and develop effective ways to get those messages across- whether you are talking to the media or making a presentation.

Training sessions can be face to face or on-line.

I have trained senior figures in the European Commission, European Council, International Criminal Court, Eurocontrol, Goodyear, Pfizer and many, many other organisations and companies across Europe.
