Podcast Training

As podcasts and newsletters become ever more popular as ways of reaching new audiences, companies need skilled and experienced guides to ensure theirs get noticed and add value.

Lila Das Gupta and Owen Bennett-Jones have between them decades of experience in the production of audio materials. Lila has also produced newsletters for clients and with Ben Fenton, the team can offer access to top-quality editorial and curation-training.

They bring vision and scriptwriting craft to all projects in this sometimes daunting and testing area of communications.

Media Training

Lila Das Gupta and Owen Bennett-Jones are well-versed media-trainers who call on decades of journalistic knowledge and their own training and track record as interviewers to train people to be their best when meeting the media.

Lila has trained chief executives and senior managers of some Britain’s best-known organisations in both the private and public sector. She has trained in learning and development skills to a high level gaining qualifications as an NLP practitioner and as an executive coach.

Both Lila and Owen worked at the BBC for many years, Lila as a reporter and senior producer, Owen as a reporter and one of the principal presenters of the BBC World Service. He is renowned for his skill as an interviewer and has carried that into a career as an academic teaching journalistic skills at universities in Europe and the Middle East.

With help from other members of the team, Lila and Owen can train people from first-time interviewees to the most experienced media veterans in the skills needed to present their best self to the public.

Ben Fenton, as one of the most experienced news reporters of his generation, provides back-up in preparing clients for meetings with the press and Peter Simon offers detailed advice on body-language and appearance from his many years’ acquired knowledge of videography.

 Presentation Skills

Over and above media training, Lila Das Gupta is highly-qualified in a number of areas of presentation-skills training. She has certification in NLP and coaching which contribute to improving the performance skills of executives on stage or in virtual presentations.

These qualities allow Lila to take people far beyond the normal range of media-training skills to allow even inexperienced presenters and speakers to show professional levels of presentation. 

Lila’s experience includes working with international clients and extends to life- and career-coaching.

Writing Projects

The three former journalists working with Mult Box Media bring unmatchable experience in writing and teaching the arts of clear written communication.

Owen Bennett-Jones has added academic experience as tutor, lecturer and mentor in journalism schools in Britain and abroad to his own book, journalism and scriptwriting credentials.

Lila Das Gupta has not only written hundreds of articles for publications such as The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and Gardeners World magazine, but she has also designed and led UK Civil-Service training programmes in improving written projects.

Ben Fenton, beyond writing more than 8,000 articles for The Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times and others, has taught writing at each of these papers and to communications professionals at Edelman. He has also created and delivered writing courses for the communications teams of global corporations.

Pete Simon can bring his long experience of shortform video production to bear to help clients create powerful corporate and commercial films for marketing purposes.
