Media Training

Expert media training - from a former BBC Editor with over 23 years experience.

Plaza at media city2ZY offers bespoke media training and coaching. New tenant broadcasters at MediaCityUK, particularly BBC Breakfast, are eager to source informed contributors based across Manchester, Salford and the wider North West. You may be an expert in your particular subject, but if the thought of sitting on the red sofa or opposite Jenni Murray fills you with terror, we can help.

Media Training at MCUKWith 23 years experience of working in the BBC, John Ryan has coached talent from the other side of the microphone, and now he can pass on those skills to you. In our first two years, we've worked with press offices, property developers, doctors, health service providers, charity organisations and senior public officials to improve their on-air performance. Every session is tailored for each client's particular need.

TV studio at Oxford RoadWe work in the field, in the office, and in actual television and radio studios to give you a realistic experience of that red light moment. We prefer to call it 'media coaching' as our emphasis is on working closely with individuals on their actual performance.

Here's a testimonial from a Angela Eden, at Salford Health Improvement Service. We trained Angela and her colleagues in TV and radio interviews and presentation in January 2017.

"I just wanted to get in touch to thank you for our excellent training day this week. I can’t tell you how much we all enjoyed it. It was so much fun and really interesting. During the course of the day I think we all grew in skills and confidence. Not only did we learn the much needed media skills, but training provided us with the opportunity to grow as a team. One of my colleagues said it was the ‘best training they’d ever been on’.

You are clearly very skilled and experienced in the topic area, and also have a lovely manner as a trainer. The venue was fantastic and a real treat to come to. I would definitely recommend this training to my colleagues."
