You may feel the last thing you need when when a major incident engulfs your organisation is for the media to arrive on your doorstep. But we simulate just that to test your handling of communications.
We’ve been running emergency exercises for 25 years in Scotland, across the UK…even in Azerbaijan!
You choose the scenario – and give us the date. We’ll pull together a team of experienced newspaper, radio and TV journalists. We’ll hire actors as concerned residents…and camera crews as required. And we make sure simulated social media goes mad. Then when you fire the starting pistol, we’ll chase the story…make hundreds of phone calls…doorstep interviewees…and run riot in a news conference or two.
Why? Because that’s what happens for real – and you need to know that your communications team can take the heat. And your spokespeople can make a bad situation better through authoritative interviews.
Oil producers, chemical engineering plants and port authorities have used us down the years for such exercises. We then simulate newspaper articles, radio reports and TV pieces…as well as a full written report with recommendations.
Very engaging. They knew their topic and were able to answer all of our questions with genuinely usable advice.

Best I’ve ever experienced!

I knew that a powerful presentation was essential. The training experience was intense and supportive and enabled me to say what I had to say. I still keep in touch with Pink Elephant – and I still ask their advice.
Dr Pamela Levack, Medical Director, PATCH Scotland
Fantastic day today spent with Bill & Andrew, a difference-making day indeed and delighted to have won a Pink Elephant trophy!
Hilary Kerr, Sales Manager, Simpsinns
Brilliant , very valuable (and highly enjoyable) training course at Pink Elephant studios last week. Would recommend this to anyone!
Lorna Paterson, Regional Manager, NFU Scotland
Some media trainers knock you down…and leave you down. Our media coaches show you how to deal with each knock…and still win through. So you have the presentation skills to perform – with confidence.
