Welcome to Scottish Media Training – dedicated online media training for Scottish businesses, charities and individuals
COVID-19 has changed the media environment out of all recognition. Online media interviews are the ‘new normal’ and will be for the foreseeable future.
Our team was one of the first in Scotland to adapt to this changing need and offer dedicated online media training, initially via Zoom – to individuals and small groups at a fraction of the time and cost of a traditional session.
We don’t only use Zoom of course. Online and remote media training sessions are organised across a raft of other Video Conferencing Platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Podio, GoToMeeting, ClickMeeting, and so on.
Our mission is to help businesses and organisations in Scotland communicate confidently and expertly in press, radio and television media interviews, by whichever online platform you regularly use. We have been there for clients in times of crisis or simply to increase confidence, across the digital and social media landscape.
We are the one-stop-shop for all your media training needs…..and we’ll continue to use this format of engagement until it is safe enough to return to our ‘round table’ style of training.

It is our job to give you the confidence to understand and face today’s media and we do this by providing your people working in trade bodies, SMEs, non-governmental and charities or associations – national membership bodies, housing associations, and individuals facing new challenges, with simple, straightforward training within an agreed budget – and at a very affordable cost. Indeed, our clients agree that our rates beat any other quotes they get!
We’ve spent our entire working lives in the media. We cut our teeth in local radio newsrooms and newspapers before ‘crossing the divide’ into the world of public and political communications, where our team has amassed nearly a century of experience.
Today’s media landscape is evolving rapidly, even before COVID-19 struck, so there has never been a better time to getting a grasp of how this will affect every aspect of your business – and help you communicate your message.
For example, how do you prepare for a national television interview from your dining room table, what distractions must you avoid, what will the media technical needs be – and all this before you even think about answering any questions. How will your business prepare for a major announcement that will impact on the lives of others and have the media scrambling for comment? How to you leverage digital media to campaign for change and communicate with your customers, shareholders and supporters? Effective media training across all platforms will give you the confidence to do so.
Being media trained will make a significant difference to your business and organisation and let you articulate and champion your cause to the media with confidence. So, what was once this….
Remember, at Scottish Media Training in Edinburgh, we focus on several key areas:

We are also happy to do safe, socially distanced in person media training at your chosen location (half or full days)
- Crisis Media Training – in person or online
- Business Communication Training
- Our sessions include local and national newspapers, TV, radio, digital/online, how to create distinct social media campaigns and much more – always tailored to your needs.
Corporate bodies, companies and organisations of all shapes and sizes simply never know when they’ll have their CEO or Director thrust in the limelight. It’s much better to be fully prepared than not!
What’s more, we even offer comprehensive training to help you face a Holyrood Parliament committee and will involve a Holyrood expert to help you gain confidence in the line of questioning.
