02 Media, presentation & crisis communication training

As a broadcast journalist, I can help you tell your story with confidence and clarity and prepare you for challenging interviews.

Media Training

Media Training

I use my journalism background to help you understand how the media works, taking control of the narrative to tell your story effectively.

Crisis communication training tests your key messaging and interview resilience.

Presentation training

I know what works on camera and in person and help you present with confidence and clarity.

Director of REACHE

Jess has been a knowledgeable  and nurturing person to have in my corner. She identified skills and talents I hadn’t seen in myself and paved the way for me to regularly appear on national television and radio as a medical expert for the past six years. She is a passionate promoter of female and BAME talent. I wouldn’t have had the opportunity or confidence to do what I do now if it hadn’t been for Jess, and what makes her stand head and shoulders above everyone else is that she stays with you on the journey
