“I’ve attended a number of media training events but this was the best; taught by knowledgeable people and it was great to have real journalists to practice on.”

  • Mark Gabbott, Executive Dean, Faculty of Business and Economics at Macquarie University

“Amber offers an honest and straight-talking approach that is backed by years of industry knowledge, and she tailored her training to my specific needs so it was relevant and fast paced.”

  • Emma Isaacs, CEO of Business Chicks

“Amber’s presentation touched on a topic that most of the leaders were looking to strengthen as communication is at the core of all effective leaders.  Her presentation was engaging and informative and left people with some of the most memorable moments from the entire 2013 program.  Her session was developed specifically for our needs to meet the curriculum requirements of our program and her depth of knowledge and experience was evident at all times. I would highly recommend Amber for your development or public speaking engagements, a highly capable speaker who really knows her topic!”

  • Natalie Goldman, National Learning & Development Manager at Peoplebank

“Museums & Galleries NSW (M&G NSW) engaged Bespoke Communications to oversee the publicity for the launch of our new website in 2013. Working with Amber was both a rewarding and pleasurable experience. She was able to use her expertise to assist us best place our limited resources and help us receive excellent coverage in print, electronic and on-line media. We look forward to finding another opportunity to work with her and Bespoke Communications.”

  • Michael Huxley, General Manager at Museums & Galleries NSW

‘It has been a great pleasure to work with Amber for our PR solution in the arts industry. Great commitment and professional manner offered by Bespoke have built a strong and continued business relationship between us. Keep up the good work and thank you! ‘

  • Kathy Leung, Founder of Red Dose

“Having worked in PR and Marketing for years, although on the other side of the table directing clients, I thought I had a fair idea of being interviewed and how to handle media. After a one day training session with Amber I rapidly realised I had my work cut out for me!! Amber worked my business partner and I through everything we would need to know – how to actually answer questions to give the media what they want, how to be relevant and interesting, how to bridge tricky questions and how to respond to flat out confronting situations. I left so prepared and inspired and after doing all my homework, I did my first media interview today and it was so utterly different to how I would have handled it had I not done Amber’s course. I feel so fortunate to have sat it, and also so much more empathetic and prepared to give journalists and reporters what they are looking for, whilst still leveraging who I am and what we do. To say I am impressed and see Amber’s Managing The Media workshop as money well spent is an understatement.”
