We record realistic interviews to give you real practice

Hello, we are Media friendly which was founded in 1998 by Andrew Carapiet, a former BBC Health and Local Government Correspondent, and Moya Fillmore, a Communications and Marketing professional with over fifteen years experience working with the Public Sector and the Healthcare Industry.

This background has given us a real understanding of public sector issues and requirements, and has enabled us to provide the best training possible to Health Authorities, PCTs and NHS Hospital Trusts, Local and Regional Government, Charities and Housing Associations.

  • Getting your good news into the media

  • Preparing for and handling a media crisis
  • Planning overall media strategy
