Peter Aitken, Centre Manager, Wellgate Dundee – “It was identified that, as a small shopping centre management team, there was a need to develop the skills to deliver media messages. Situations arise unexpectedly and the team need to deliver concise responses at a moment’s notice.
“Having worked with Gary and Claire, we asked them to help us put in place a strategy which would equip us to improve our presentation and delivery of on-the-spot interviews with media streams – for example, newspapers and live situations in radio and television.
“Following some meetings with Gary and Claire to identify what we needed, spending time with us to learn what we face, they built a course which entailed a full-day in the studio. Scenarios covered were very real to our work environment. Their support was fantastic, feedback was superb and we ended the day feeling much more confident. We’d highly recommend this duo for any PR and communication needs.”
