What our clients say:

  • Handling important physicians and steering debates along the lines we wanted while keeping the participants engaged is a real skill. To do that in many languages with such a high level of expertise is a great achievement. The feedback has been first class.

    Head of Medical Affairs, US Biotech company
  • I left the training on a real high. I went home and bored my family with how exciting, inspiring and above all useful the media training was. The practice interviews were by turns terrifying, humbling and thought-provoking. I shall never look at a media interview about science or medicine in the same way again. I also hope I will be better at it! Heartfelt thanks.

    Rheumatology professor, UK
  • ‘A must-read for all doctors and scientists involved in presenting results of medical research.’

    Prof David White. Ontario.
  • Praise for Communicating Clearly about Science and Medicine
    One of the most useful books I’ve read in years. Jam-packed with useful tips and insights…full of practical wisdom. My only regret is that I was not able to read it 30 years ago!

    Professor Sir Martin Taylor, University of Oxford, UK
