Expert coaching from a BBC broadcaster

Nothing can beat coaching and guidance from a working reporter. My training workshops  build your confidence and remove all the mystery from media engagement. The sessions are lively and entertaining, not confronting or embarrassing. You'll discover how to be an effective spokesperson; a great story-teller, and a valued media contact.

Training options

Media Training

Media training

Media training workshops are available in Auckland and nationwide. The half-day sessions are ideal for anyone preparing for a spokesperson role. You can train one-to-one, or in small groups of two or three together. Most clients prefer in-house training. Boardroom hire is also available.

Virtual Training

Virtual training

All media training options are also available online, via Zoom. Online training is ideal for staff working in remote locations, or for anyone requiring short-notice coaching. An online session can be less intimidating than face to face. But the content remains the same - including live on-camera interview tips and critiques.

Presentation Training

Presentation training

Do you struggle with boardroom presentations and public speaking? Perhaps you're keen to gain confidence or be a more dynamic speaker. My on-camera critiques are the best way to improve. With one to one guidance, you’ll learn how to prepare; how to deliver and how to engage.


Media training resources

"Greg is inspiring and focused. I learnt more in our half-day session than a 2-day course back in the UK. I would happily recommend Greg”


"Probably the most worthwhile training I have ever done not just because of what it was but because who delivered it. Greg was simply brilliant".

Campbell Brown | GrabOne

"I have done a number of media training workshops and yours was one of the most interactive and extremely interesting sessions I have experienced."

Gary Talbot QSM | Thames Valley Emergency Operating Area

"I think we all learned a lot from you. We couldn’t stop talking about the training after you left.  It is no wonder you are the best media trainer in the business!"
