Led by former CNBC presenter Mark Laudi, we provide the right balance of actionable concepts and the most thorough on-camera practise.

It's media-everywhere!
Senior business leaders know they must develop their media profile to build their personal and corporate brand, attract and retain talent, and build consumer and shareholder trust. But in an always-on, probably-live, media-everywhere environment they must be just as adept dealing with bloggers and social media activists as with traditional print and broadcast journalists.


Strong track record

Mark has coached and mentored senior business and government leaders in media skills since 2006. Many of our new clients come to us through recommendations from our many long-standing clients.

We have an S6 rating from the Singapore government under EPU/SER/32/34/35.

Practical & actionable

Participants get hands-on experience. All learnings are immediately practised, and can be applied straight away.

Our intensive coaching and workshops are highly engaging and interactive.

Flexible & Customised

Every session is tailored to your precise needs.

We set no limit on the minimum and maximum number of participants in each workshop (tempered only by the need to allow enough time to practise).

We set no limits on the duration. Our workshops range from one hour "dial-a-doorstop" refreshers to multi-day mentorships.

We are also available after hours and on weekends, to fit in with your senior business leaders' hectic schedules.

Record a video straight away

Learning outcomes are applicable to a variety of internal and external communications scenarios, including traditional and new media.

We are so confident of the effectiveness of our curriculum that we offer to produce a publishable video blog at the end of each workshop, which participants can upload to their YouTube channel or LinkedIn profile straight away.

Genuine television experience

Participants can practise their media skills in our purpose-built training facility, incorporating our executive boardroom and green screen TV studios in city centre locations.

Alternatively, we will come to your office - anywhere!


Our curriculum is refined and mature, but is always brought up-to-date with the changing media environment.

That's why we constantly add new courses. Click "Services" in the menu.
