Consultancy

AMO Media Associates has grown from the media, digital and creative sector. We work with major business clients on their media and corporate communications strategies. We have a specialism in crisis communications, media management and working with the EU and national governments.

We also work with businesses to empower their employees through coaching and mentoring programmes. We focus on endurance in business, impact and communicating powerfully.

We have a further specialism in TV channel and programme launches,  journalism training and international media development.

In the public sector, we work across regional and national projects in the UK and also have a wealth of experience of working with the European Union and  within the Arab World and Eastern Europe.

We have raised over £40 million through different areas of public sector financing.

We can help you with business and people growth and development, change management, internal and corporate communications and crisis communications.

Crisis Communications

We bring a unique set of experiences to combating negative media and getting your side of the story over to the press. With over a decade of senior editorial experience at the BBC and other major news outlets, we understand how journalism works. But as CEOs and senior directors within the public and private sectors, we have had to face challenging and difficult relationships and questions from the media and successfully overcome varied communications crises.

Strategic and business development

We have supported the launch, growth and also (unfortunately) shrinking of companies in the digital and creative sector. We can set strategic direction, and create financial and communications plans for any stage of company development.

Coaching and Mentoring

We run coaching and mentoring services for large and smaller businesses. We specialise in supporting managers to reach the highest levels through emerging leadership programmes. We focus on building endurance, communicating powerfully, delivering impact and results. We use adventure and endurance sports techniques in conjunction with leadership and business skills.
Our associates have successfully raised over £40 million from public and private investors to finance projects in the creative and digital sector. We are experts in fundraising from public sector sources such as UK regional and national funds and the EU. We are then able to match this with private financing.

Journalism Training

We are able to draw on a huge pool of expertise within the broadcast, online and press sector at the highest level to deliver international journalism training. We can deliver across all the technical and editorial disciplines within the sector.

Launch projects

We have a strong track record in launching new ventures. We have been involved in the launch of 4 TV News Channels in the UK, Middle East and Eastern Europe, as well as magazines, a large ISP, a creative and digital investment agency and an international media development project.
