We have an impressive track record working for various Government Departments, including The Department of Health, The Home Office and The Department for Communities and Local Government.

A huge thank you for the excellent training you provided yesterday. You obviously put them all at ease very quickly and it was clear to me how engaged they were. When you read the feedback forms they absolutely back this up.  The work that you put in beforehand, getting to know the issues facing the county council, was evident.

Communications Division, Derbyshire County Council

Everyone has really enjoyed the recent Media Training and PR Workshops, you are among the most flexible training providers and have the skills to tailor courses to our specific needs.

Yorkshire Housing

Having worked on the other side of the fence in journalism, when I was looking to book some media training for my colleagues in local government, I knew exactly what I was after and Media Friendly more than fulfilled the brief. Andrew Carapiet delivered two superb one day courses which resulted in fantastic feedback from each participant (12 in all). Much was learnt and as well as being extremely valuable, the day was enjoyed by all which is equally important – Andrew Carapiet is a real professional and is able to engage participants throughout every second of the day. I plan to run these courses through Media Friendly every year from now on.

Just a quick note to say how pleased we all were with the way the media training went yesterday with Andrew, who was absolutely charming and delivered an excellent session.

Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust

Fantastic and worthwhile course, which will be useful in my everyday duties at work. I will also use these skills to get my message across in external formal meetings.
