We are two of the UK's most experienced, bespoke media trainers, working with global brand names as well as public and voluntary sectors.
Fear of saying the wrong thing often prevents organisations from exploiting media opportunities… and from responding effectively in a crisis. As former journalists, broadcasters and PRs, we help you build your knowledge and confidence by giving you the tools to manage media encounters more productively. We’ll put you in the hot seat with realistic mock interviews, in working TV studios if you wish.
"This is not just the best media training course I have been on... It's the best training of any kind I've ever been on. I felt positively rejuvenated after the media training."Sarah Dornford-May, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service
Rocket-fuel for teams and individuals!
Who doesn’t want their team/s to be operating on full throttle? Investing in your people through our tailored courses will send their performance into the stratosphere! They will be re-energised, happier, more confident, have greater personal impact and a renewed commitment to the company. Although bespoke, there are three levels of training:
- Graduate and new hires: Adapting to the corporate environment – how to acquire poise, polish, professionalism and personal impact
- New Managers: Personal impact in a bigger role – being impressive and confident
- Middle and Senior Managers: Re-energising your personal impact and confidence
"Sarah and Merryn have worked with colleagues at every level within Smart Energy GB, transforming their personal and professional impact with renewed confidence, greater effectiveness and enhanced performance in their roles"Mikael Nilsson, HR Manager
Scary, isn't it?
But being an effective communicator will give you a powerful competitive advantage. Whether you are talking to an international conference, your own team, or whether you’re pitching for business, compelling and engaging performances give you authority, credibility and stature. Our bespoke presentation skills courses share our practical, fun and effective ‘Top Tips’ developed during career lifetimes in front of cameras and at the sharp end of corporate life.
"Working closely with our Managing Director and Senior Leaders they delivered above and beyond expectations."Sidonie Myers, Centrica plc
Your greatest asset!
Confidence and self-belief are huge assets in all areas of life – especially at work. You’ve got the qualifications, the skills, the talent and the experience, but is something holding you back from achieving your full potential?
We create bespoke support for groups and individuals, which help you re-assess and re-build three important areas of your life:
- Identify and change hidden emotional habits which have become self-limiting.
- Introduce an incredibly powerful, thought-provoking process to develop your personal brand and communications skills.
- Develop behavioural ‘micro-weapons’ which will transform your personal effectiveness and credibility. We’ve called it “Faking it!” for years – and now Amy Cuddy, professor at Harvard Business School, agrees.
"Our candidates have been delighted with the courses we run with Merryn and Sarah and I’d have no hesitation in recommending Perris-Myatt"Sally Richards, Senior Manager, Aviva
In many large organisations each department does it own thing without reference to the others.
The result is mixed messages to both internal and external audiences.
We work with clients to transform company communications into a strategic strength, building brand image and enhancing corporate reputation as a result.
We are sure-footed partners, who advise and deliver practical and strategic communications support from a clear-sighted, external perspective.
"Thank you both for a truly brilliant strategic comms session - highly recommended."Jolyon Maugham QC
