Probably the best in the business
About Us

Media Zoo’s messaging, media training and presentation training is widely regarded as some of the best in the business. And that’s not us saying it. That’s the feedback from major blue chip companies across the world who use us again and again when they have major events coming up and they want their senior teams to be at the very top of their game.

We tailor our courses specifically to the needs of each client, but they all feature a powerful mix of theory and practical exercises. Delegates who attend our courses come away with a whole set of valuable techniques that can be used right away, every day.

Courses are delivered in our state-of-the-art London studio, or we travel to clients anywhere in the world. We have an extensive portfolio of clients who have retained us as their media training supplier of choice for well over a decade.

What we offer.
Media Training & Interview Rehearsal
We train spokespeople for interviews with a full range of trade, national and international print and broadcast media. All our courses are delivered by top class training professionals who are former national journalists. Most courses begin with message development, followed by a series of mock interviews which are filmed and played back for invaluable learning during the session. Everything is backed up with a full range of support materials.
Presentation Training
Our presentation courses provide participants with a methodology that can be used at short notice to deliver a high impact presentation in any situation. We have worked with clients to develop presentations for specialist audiences including MPs, doctors, bankers, academics and investors as well as numerous internal audiences. If you have to give the presentation of your life, we can help you.
Message Development
Message development is the foundation for any communications strategy. We work with companies to develop their messaging to a broad range of audiences. In addition, we have been used by many businesses to train their in-house communications teams to be able to develop impactful, engaging messaging themselves.
Convincing Communication
This course gives your senior people the skills they need to be able to communicate effectively with their teams and external audiences in order to maximise business impact and results. Clients have repeatedly rolled out this course across their entire mid-senior level teams in order to improve communications across the business.
Communication & Engagement for Senior Leaders
Our senior leadership programme helps deliver behavioural change within an organisation. By offering a mix of communication and leadership skills, we help senior leaders maximise their personal impact with their teams. This programme has shown that leaders can change the culture within their organisation by changing the tone and content of the conversations they have with those around them. It helps create more effective leaders and more focused teams.
Crisis Communications
Our trainers are experienced senior journalists, having worked at national level across broadcast, print and digital media. As PR professionals they can help you face any crisis. Crucially, we know our training works because we manage real crisis situations. We’ve helped clients manage issues including product recalls, profits warnings, restructuring and redundancies, pensions reform, executive reputation and many other issues.
Social Media
We use a rolling scenario to identify the most effective way to use social media in a variety of situations. We show how company messaging can be communicated on multiple platforms and help delegates understand how social media can be used to effectively manage reputation and drive engagement with audiences.
Responding to Investigative Journalism
Our trainers spent many years working for some of the UK’s highest profile investigative teams including Panorama, Watchdog, and Tonight. We show you how investigative journalists approach a story, the pitfalls to avoid, and the best way to handle issues when they arise. With a rolling scenario designed specifically for your needs, we ensure that delegates experience what it is like to be the subject of journalistic investigation, and how best to handle the situation.
PR Masterclass
We have been hired on many occasions to run PR masterclasses for in-house PR teams. Over one or two days, we cover the full range of skills needed to ensure your communications team is at the top of their game. The course includes message development, strategic planning, crisis and pro-active comms, interview preparation, social media, writing press releases and presentation training. We ensure the course exactly matches the needs of your team and organisation.
