More about Stephen Howe Consulting Ltd

dealing with the media steve howe

Steve Howe MVO
Steve Howe MVO has spent much of his working life helping others to improve their performance as communicators. His own background as a journalist and as the Director of Communications for The Outward Bound Trust, a major outdoor training and development charity, has given him a unique set of skills with which to guide and coach others who find themselves dealing with the media.

He has been on the receiving end of dozens of media interviews both benign and as tough as they get, with appearances on national and local radio, BBC, ITV, Sky, Channel 4 and E4. Working with an experienced film crew much of his work is done with senior teams in organisations as part of their Major Incident Planning or in their fundraising campaigns.
