“The training James put us through was tough but entertaining, insightful and always relevant. His feedback was massively useful and made us think of things we wouldn’t have otherwise. It was exactly what you want as a top athlete – hard training to make the performance easier”

“I did the Brightness Media showreel with Gavin, having had experience with other companies offering this service I can assure you my time with Gavin was second to none. The day was totally bespoke and the time he takes to tutor and advise you as well as producing each scene is invaluable. I felt comfortable and therefore enjoyed every minute of the day. This is reflected in my showreel. Gavin takes a real interest in you as a person and gives you all the time you need to perfect your skill.”

Tim Scott – Community Projects Manager, Asda Stores Ltd

“James worked with us to deliver some media training at our 2013 Asda athletes workshop at St Georges Park, to an audience of 50 up and coming British Athletes. James delivered an engaging and interactive session and really brought the young people out of their shell. His experience and knowledge shone through and resulted in fantastic feedback from the delegates. I would certainly consider working with James again on other opportunities in the future.”

Mark Ramprakash – Former Professional Cricketer

“Gavin and James are a first rate combination. They calmed my nerves and gave me a thorough grounding in the world of TV presentation. I cannot recommend the course highly enough.”
