About Big Fish Training

As Bespoke As You Need Us To Be

For individual delegates

We find out beforehand what you want and need to achieve, learn or change. Tell us what problems you're facing and what skills you want to develop and we'll ensure the training fits your needs

For business leaders

We work with you to provide training that delivers observable business benefits to your organisation or team

Preparation and debrief

We'll talk beforehand to get a briefing and we'll follow up afterwards to share our observations and suggestions

Specialist Training for Public Relations People

Experience

Trainers come from the PR industry so we understand the working environment/pressures/challenges/issues

Expertise

Each course comes from industry best practice and experience - not just ours, but from 12 years of working with delegates who try out the techniques in the real world

Awareness

We know what agency life is about. And we know what it's like working as part of an in-house PR team. We get it and it shows

Best Practice - Tried and Tested in the Real World

Relevant

We track the theory so you don't have to, then we thrash it out for the real world of PR

Practical

Every course is structured so that participants work through how best to apply the principles to their own work - so they can use it for success as soon as they get back to the office

Realistic

A focus on realistic action plans - we work with participants to highlight changes that will make a noticeable difference

Continuing Support

Partnership

We recognise that successful skills development is a balance between knowledge and practice

Availability

We don't disappear once the training is over: we make ourselves available

Backup

Participants who are trying out new ways of doing things are not alone: they can ask us questions, get help and feel confident that they have someone on their side
