Robert Taylor’s media training session has to rate amongst the best half days that I’ve spent in classroom environment during my working career. I appreciated the brisk pace of the session, the use of technology as a learning tool and the benefit of an experienced team of individuals who all had something to offer due to their varied backgrounds. I walked out of the session knowing that I’d learned something new, understood my weakness but also a confirmation of my abilities. All in all, the morning we spent with him and his team was a fantastic mix of anecdotes, insight, guidance, education and enjoyment. More of the same please.Director at British Airways

Through this process his technical aptitude and grasp of the technological and media landscape helped us shape and grow our vision to something far beyond what we initially started from. Especially key throughout this was his ability to genuinely liaise between IT, end users and executive management stakeholders.Content Development Manager at Jane’s Information
