More about Stephen Howe Consulting Ltd

dealing with the media

"You know that you need to be prepared for a crisis, but it is often the preparation that can be daunting. Working with Steve, Mike and Dave from SHC not only helped to focus me but it also equipped me with the necessary tips and advice to react sensibly  and coherently across a wide range of crisis situations. I left the training day feeling confident that, should a crisis arise in the company, i would be able to handle whatever the media were to throw at me."

Gill Russell
PR Manager, Regatta


Patterdale Mountain Rescue
"Steve recently provided a very professional and concise media briefing and presentation to the leadership team of Patterdale Mountain Rescue Team, one of the busiest teams in the country. The leaders are now equipped to deal with a variety of sensitive media situations in a news hungry world, with skills gained from Steve's fantastic training style."

Nigel Harling
Training Officer, Patterdale Mountain Rescue


Outward Bound Trust
"SHC delivered an outstanding and confidence building piece of media training for my senior team. It was exceptionally valuable and tailored specifically to our work"

Nick Barret
Chief Executive of The Outward Bound Trust


Independent Schools Adventure Activities Association
“Delegates at our annual conference found the insights into serious incident and media management very helpful. In particular the opportunity to take part in or watch a journalist conducting a TV interview with some of our members in front of the camera was invaluable.”

Dave Watkinson
Chairman of Independent Schools Adventure Activities Association


Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association
"I was invited to attend one of Steve's media training sessions and although having had some previous media training from a work environment perspective, Steve's coaching style, content and practical (and challenging) training approach were extremely valuable for our voluntary sector.  Within 24 hours of completing the training I was approached by local radio for an interview where the lessons learned were put straight into practice.  I can certainly recommend this training to anybody who has a role representing their organisation in front of the media, especially if you are put on the spot with those 'challenging questions' that can potentially drive you into a hole where you just seem to keep digging."

Richard Warren
Chairman, Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association
