We loved working with the guys at SEGA this week – looking at their monthly meetings and how to make them work online. Like so many companies lots of communications has turned to the likes of Teams or Zoom.
It’s great to see the guys at SEGA wanting to make sure these sessions feel as dynamic as when they were in person. So we workshopped lots of ideas around how these sessions can be shaped and we also put the ideas into practise.
It was so great to see the ideas come to life, and the guys at SEGA embracing change and wanting to make their monthly meetings the go to event for all of their staff.
Congratulations guys on some great learning. We look forward to hearing about all the results.
If you are presenting online in whatever form and want to be better – give us a shout. We can help!
Presentation Skills Training:
We offer something extra special and unique when it comes to presentation skills training.
We have over 20 years experience working in the media with some of the biggest presenters on TV – Claudia Winkleman, Tess Daly, Dermot O’Leary, Raymond Blanc, Zoe Ball, Roman Kemp, Rylan, Sara Cox – the list goes on.
We are all about personal branding and marketing – helping you find and develop your own style and voice that works for your business and your customer.
It’s crucial for us that your presentation skills training is as unique as you are, so everything we do is bespoke.
Presentation skills coaching can all too often be too corporate, and we can help you and your business stand out, be authentic and therefore make sure your message has the maximum impact.
We’ve worked with a long list of great brands and businesses – ASOS, Lush Cosmetics, NIKE, Prudential, Virgin, AOL, The Guardian, Sage….
So if you want presentation skills training that is a step above the rest drop us a line.
Our TV presenter training courses are now all up and running. Your safety will always be our priority and we are now allowed to film, and are following the 2 metre ruling from the Government. Our presenter courses are always small - we don't run big group TV presenter training courses where lots of people are in a small room. Instead we have a maximum of 4 clients on our award-winning fast track TV presenter course, where you will work alongside a TV Producer and a cameraman. For the 1 to 1 presenter coaching it is just yourself, a TV Producer and a cameraman.
Our online presenter training courses will continue to run as we do our best to support you during these hard times, and it's work that we have also really enjoyed. But we are truly excited to be back in the studio!
All the dates for our presenter training courses can be found on the Book Now part of the website. So do check them out as there is limited availability for June now.
See you soon!

We are the UK's leading media training company and offer something extra special and personal in the all too sterile and out-of-date world of media training.
You'll work with BAFTA winning TV Producers, media coaches and former BBC NEWS journalists that have worked with some of the biggest names in broadcasting.
We will design a media training programme based on your goals and our own intensive research on your business.
Clients come to us for coaching for TV, radio, corporate videos, and social media content for instagram, YouTube and TikTok - our training is bespoke to your needs.
We are the only company to develop your 'personal brand' helping you find your own presenting style - one that works with the brand of your business.
We’ll teach you our secrets, and expert tips and tricks that we have developed in over 20 years in the media business.
So if you want to maximise your media opportunity we can help you realise your true potential.
Everything is bespoke to you, and the type of media work you wil be doing, ensuring we get exceptional results.
The length of our sessions are also bespoke to your needs. So we can discuss the various options:
- 1 to 1 two hour coaching sessions online or in person.
- 1 to 1 full day or half day coaching online or in person.
- Group coaching sessions online or in person.
In advance of our media training session we’ll send you a form to fill in where we can start to get to know you, your business and your needs. We'll then undertake detailed research into your business, brand, and customer – from looking at your website to social media to any previous media work.
Our media training programmes are personality driven as your personality is the key to your success. Audiences are wise to and turned off by people who have been ‘media trained’.
If you want to be successful you need to come across as natural, authentic and honest so that your audience can connect and identify with you - it's what we call finding your personal brand. And we'll ensure your personal brand works with the brand of your business.
You'll develop your own style, find your own voice and ensure that your message feels authentic.
We are also real creatives so if you want to create content for your social media we can come up with scripts, ideas and a strategy for you.
Or if this is more for TV opportunities we'll help you master interviews, craft your messaging, and come across as your authentic self.
We have produced TV’s biggest programmes from BBC NEWS to entertainment shows like Strictly Come Dancing to Documentaries to Features.
A Producer is hired to ‘produce’ the Presenter – writing their scripts and giving them direction.
We are seasoned experts in content creation and in making 'you' look good - from perfecting your message, your script and how to deliver it.
We'll also look at your messaging, scripts and content as without a clear message everything else falls down.
We are experts in script writing and content creation and will reveal our tricks on how to write and structure your content to ensure your message authentic, engaging and impactful.
If you are to be working in TV or Radio our media training courses are bespoke to you and the areas we look to include are:
- How to think about your media interview.
- How and what to prepare.

To train 100 of their social media influencers from all around the world in one session in London.
NIKE asked us to coach 100 EKINS (social media influencer team – NIKE spelt backwards) to help them come across on brand, natural and engaging for all their social media and video content.
After initial conversations we wrote them a bespoke training programme that was both practical and informative, working with the scripts and type of work NIKE were doing.
We had 3 hours to coach 100 clients flown from all over the world to work with us. Clients worked in teams and received individual coaching around various exercises.
“Big shout out for putting together an awesome run of show and quickly learning and understanding the group’s needs. The tone of voice of how the session was great too, very casual and informal, the best way EKINs respond! The Team expressed how fun, engaging, practical and ultimately useful they found the session.”
A one day bespoke training session for 4 people, to include media training and presentation skills coaching.
Each attendee is sent a form, where they can tell us about their business, their role, their needs and want to get out of their time with us.
We tailor-make the programme to suit each individual’s needs, and those of the department that asked us to do the training.
The morning focussed on media training, and the afternoon on presentation skills.
We started by taking a step back, looking at the brand of the business, their customer, the ambition of the business and the purpose of their video content. This ‘re-group’ really helps the clients to revaluate, refocus and puts everything we do into context.
We discuss the importance of finding your own voice, but one that works within the voice of the business – and that is the core purpose of the whole day – to explore, develop and establish each individual’s presenting style.
There are no general rules to how to be a good presenter – as each person is different. So we chat you through our checklist of things to think about when it comes to being ‘you’ and ‘believable’ on camera.
We worked with the clients in lots of different ways, with and without scripts - putting the clients in scenarios that reflect the media work they will have to do. Each exercise is also about building their personal brand, with detailed coaching from us.
Scripts play a big part in what we do – the foundation to a good presenter is understanding what makes a good script, how to make it your own, and how to deal with any information you might need to get across.
The afternoon was spent looking at presentation skills. We started off with our do’s and dont’s, before giving feedback on the scripts they had previously written.
Much time was then spent rewriting scripts, before we worked with each person individually on delivering their new presentation in front of the room.
We end the day discussing their personal brands, bringing together all the work we have done.
