Three recent media trainees from the British Veterinary Association

I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for the video you created for the school, your discretion and sensitivity whilst filming in a busy school trying to accommodate the needs of the pupils and staff was greatly appreciated as was your intuition as to what would work well on tape. We are so happy with the results and we have had some wonderful feedback of the video which has changed the shape of our website and brought it very up to date.

We look forward to working with you on future projects.

I found this course really useful. It made me think about my research in a whole new way. Being able to talk about the essence of what I am doing, explain why it’s important and not get side-tracked. Fantastic insight. Thank you!

Today’s media training has really helped prepare me for being a spokesperson. I have developed skills I learnt and new techniques which I feel will help me be a better prepared, more confident interviewee. I will be much less daunted by the experience! Thank you.
