The plan is simple: you learn how to prepare and perform, so you can confidently share your expertise when you're under pressure.

Marvellous Media Training UK encourages clients to position themselves as credible expert commentators rather than hard put upon company spokespeople. They then see that appearing as a guest interviewee is a golden opportunity to share knowledge and experience.

Your job is made easier because it's easier to sell in expertise, than it is stories.

We've enabled 100s of individuals in organisations of all sizes and sectors to feel confident about appearing on the media. And they leave our training days actually excited about the prospect!

A thoroughly engaging, insightful, and practical media training session. I certainly came away with some useful tactics, a greater understanding about how the media works and some focus areas for our future activities.

Media Training UK Case Study

Media Training case study

We worked with leaders, employees, and volunteers at Leeds 2023. We helped them share their message,  attract sponsors, generate engagement, and create excitement about their year of culture.

"A fantastic job - Since their training, our media and digital engagement is up by 91% and 65% respectively and we've landed 10 new businesses as sponsors including our first all important headline partner, at a six-figure level!"

Abigail Scott Paul - Media Training UK Review

"Bit Famous have done a fantastic job in boosting our team's confidence and ability to articulate and sell the vision and story of LEEDS 2023 to media, business and political stakeholders.  As a time-limited start-up with a hard-deadline, we needed to move fast to establish our credibility with stakeholders quickly. 

The work they've done with us has allowed us to crystallise the 'why?' organisations, companies and the public should back us; it's also given us the tools and learning to get out there confidently and secure new partnerships, business relationships and funding." 

Abigail Scott Paul, Director of External Relations and Strategic Partnerships at LEEDS 2023
