Consulting and training

Stephen Pritchard provides a range of consulting services, including media training, corporate messaging, and practical sessions in podcast production, mobile video and commissioning and managing video content.

Media training

Stephen helps senior executives, researchers, and members of the star-up community prepare for media engagements and ensure they can put their message across in a way that works on screen, on the air or in the newspapers.

Each training course is carefully tailored to the needs of the organisation and the individual participants, and focuses on hands-on interview practice.

All sessions include a video recording and extensive feedback, and we provide a full, turnkey service including all broadcast and audio-visual support.

Training sessions can also cover other aspects of media engagement, such as drafting by-lined articles or blog posts.

His focus is on the infosecurity, IT and defence and aerospace and professional services sectors, although recent client engagements have also included the healthcare, financial services and utility sectors.

Messaging sessions and website evaluation

Testing corporate or product messaging with an experienced journalist is an effective way to fine-tune communications.

Stephen undertakes both desk-based and workshop-based messaging sessions, on their own or as part of a media training programme.

We also offer professional reviews of company or client websites, focusing on their PR and media relations sessions. These evaluations follow a journalist’s path to find information, and highlight where a company might need more content, or clearer communications links.

Practical and skills training

Stephen runs a range of specialist training courses, including film making on mobile devices, podcasting and commissioning and managing video production. These courses are aimed primarily at PR and communications professionals, but equally can be adapted for specialists in editorial or training roles.
