For almost 20 years Andrew has combined journalism with media and presentation consultancy, training people from all walks of life – from senior civil servants and business chief executives - to face audiences and the media with confidence.

He has trained spokespeople to appear on heavyweight news programmes such as the Today Programme and Channel 4 News. His clients have also graced the couches of the Richard and Judy show. His extensive client list includes IBM, the Cabinet Office, British Airways and Rolls Royce.

Boyd's books

Andrew has written several books on the subject of the media – notably “How to Handle Media Interviews” and six editions of the leading textbook “Broadcast Journalism”, which has become the number one primer for trainee broadcasters and has been translated into several languages. Before resuming his freelance career, he was a senior lecturer in broadcasting on post-graduate courses at The London College of Printing and Highbury College, Portsmouth. He continues to train journalists internationally for UNESCO.
