TESTIMONIALS

"Jeremy has led some incredible media and crisis training for Hilton across Europe, with 97% of participants rating the training as very good or excellent. In addition, Jeremy has produced some very high quality films for the company, both internal corporate and external consumer facing material. Jeremy is incredibly professional, with great technical knowledge and people skills. As a result he is a great partner, highly respected by myself and the wider business."

Jules Kerby, Hilton Worldwide

"We've used Jeremy and his team for media training over the last couple of years. He knows the business intimately and certainly puts execs of all levels through their paces in a series of hands-on exercises, all linked to pre-determined messaging. If you are promoting or protecting a brand I can recommend Jeremy highly."

Stuart Leven, Royal Caribbean Cruises

"I used Jeremy to introduce our senior team to press and PR handling in the event of a crisis. The day that Jeremy pulled together was exceptional, fun, engaging and took all of the team out of their comfort zone in a manner that generated enthusiasm, commitment and a memorable day. It also provided real strategies and plans that they could take away. If you want individual or group training in PR and media skills, I think Jeremy is about the best you can get."

Christopher Preston, Big Bus Tours

"Jeremy has moderated our Annual Travel Agents Conference now for the last 6 years. Jeremy is a pleasure to work with and is a true professional. He takes time to understand our business and our requirements. It's important for Jeremy to ensure every detail is covered and so his planning and preparation for our events has been excellent and no stone has been left unturned. Professional, passionate, enthusiastic, trustworthy, loyal and hard working!"

Cherie Richards, The Global Travel Group

"First class moderator of the annual Barclays Travel Forum, attended by circa 300 senior industry figures, for a number of years."

Chris Lee, Barclays

"Jeremy is a fantastic moderator who we have invited back every year to host the Theatres at our consumer events. He is always incredibly well prepared, passionate about the travel trade and good humoured, putting our speakers at ease. He has facilitated insightful Q&As with a variety of celebrity speakers including Michael Portillo and Ronan Keating, coaxing questions out of the audience and making the sessions upbeat and entertaining."

Holly Jaggers, The Daily Telegraph

"The session you conducted was outstanding, and you provided us with such a great behind-the-scenes viewpoint of how decisions are made, and how to approach them. The hands on approach utilised by you is extremely impactful and far more beneficial than anything one could learn on a theoretical basis. We thank you for your time, and we will certainly be using you for future refresher courses."

Gavin Tollman, The Travel Corporation

"We worked with Jeremy on a media training programme across Europe, Middle East and Africa and have been very pleased with the results. Jeremy was always extremely well prepared, enthusiastic and on top of his game in every session. All our spokespeople were full of praise for the training they received - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."

Kate Aldridge, Travelport

"We recently commissioned Jeremy for two projects: moderating at consumer event and presentation skills training. Both carried out with his usual attention to detail, reliably professional and with his good humour to put folks at their ease. Well done."

Lynn Scrivener, Ramblers Holidays

"As a new CEO, I was keen to improve my media skills, to help promote my organisation. Jeremy developed a bespoke training session for me that was extremely high quality and tailored not only to my individual needs, but also the key issues of my sector. Jeremy's experience as a journalist was invaluable and he gave me some real insights into the tricks of the media trade. The session included several practical sessions and Jeremy's feedback was incisive but highly supportive. I have done a number of media interviews since the training session and have drawn heavily on Jeremy's advice - thank you!"

Deirdre Wells, UKinbound

"Jeremy is very skilled at getting the best out of people, whether they are at junior or managing director level. His vast experience across a broad spectrum of media ensures a realistic approach, whilst showing how to deliver the right message in the right tone to the right media audience. He instils confidence and provides direct, constructive feedback."

Michele Andjel, P&O Cruises

"Jeremy is a wonderful moderator, with all the professional craft required to tease out pertinent and salient information from speakers, whilst ensuring our seminars remained on course, relevant and professional, punctuated with genius touches of light-hearted humour."

Byron Shirto, Latin American Travel Association
