Dealing with the media – Testimonials

‘Isabel to the rescue! After benefiting enormously from a personal coaching session with media expert Isabel Walker two years ago I turned to her recently for an urgent refresher session prior to a daunting, high-level conference at which I was to speak. Her invaluable tips on dealing with questions, retaining control of issues within my comfort zone and building that all-important bridge back to my own area of expertise during on-stage discussions, gave me a tremendous sense of confidence and calm.’
Kathy Oliver, Co-Director, International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA)

‘Isabel’s excellent training moved me from being a stilted performer, on the back foot in response to questions, to a confident communicator on top of my story. Afterwards I was able to handle 20 networked radio interviews in two hours as well as going live on BBC TV News and Radio 4’s The World Tonight.’
Prof Maggie Pearson, Co-Director, Dean, College of Health & Social Care, University of Salford
