About Us

Perris-Myatt brings together the skills and (considerable!) experience of Sarah Perris and Merryn Myatt. Sarah as a former Worldwide Communications Director for Bentley Motors, and Merryn as a former BBC newsreader and journalist.

We help individuals and organisations to build their brand and to enhance their reputation by communicating more productively. We specialise in training people in the art of dealing with journalists – particularly in a crisis. All our work is bespoke, we don’t have off-the-shelf courses. Whether we are delivering crisis management, positive media relations, personal impact, presentation training or building personal confidence:

  • We tell it like it is
  • We don’t do bullshit
  • We give honest advice at reasonable cost
  • We make it fun!
