Global reach and impact
James is extremely experienced and well prepared. I particularly like his direct and engaging style, along with the usage of real-life case studies to bring his practical tips to life. He creates a safe and open space, and whether working with a group or delivering bespoke, one-to-one training, James builds people’s confidence in dealing with the media. They leave feeling empowered.

I was very fortunate to have the benefit of media coaching from James at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, an incredibly intense period for the National Emergencies Trust. Delivered very professionally, the training was designed to meet my specific needs and ensured I was fully equipped with the necessary skills for TV and radio interviews. Having previously experienced other media training, I can genuinely say that James’s approach was a real confidence-builder, not least because it provided a simple yet very versatile model that could be adapted to any situation. Thank you, James!

The crisis management training programme was very well thought through, with real case studies that incorporated all elements of an evolving story. Not only did everyone come away with lots of insight into the broadcast media and practical tips on getting the message across but we all had an excellent day, full of laughter. Even those who felt apprehensive about being in front of the camera left the session feeling much more confident.

I can’t recommend James highly enough. Excellent media training delivered with authority and passion. If you’re looking for someone to help your spokespeople advance to the next level, James can provide not only the tools to enable them to do so but that extra stardust to ensure they stand out from the crowd.

The training James put us through was challenging but entertaining, insightful and always relevant. His feedback was massively useful and made me think of things that would never have occurred to me. It’s exactly what you want – tough training to make the performance easier.

I have many high profile clients that require a sensitive approach, particularly during a crisis. I cannot recommend JP Media Training highly enough. The advice is always first class, and the training techniques are extremely effective. James Pearce is the best in the business.
