People often ask, where does the Pink Elephant come from? We can answer that for you now. Simple. Our founder, Bill McFarlan, wrote a book about them called “Drop The Pink Elephant”.

With Pink Elephant Communications your executive board is in safe hands.
I recommend courses that have a lasting, positive impact, and I definitely will recommend this course. I have found myself asking why I don’t always feel sure about what I am saying, why do I think, or hope instead of believe or know. I will now say what I mean.

I really enjoyed the afternoon session with Bill. Lots of relatable stories that have stayed with me and made me aware of how much more impactful I can be by following some basic principles.

The session took a number of our chief officers with little media interview experience… There was a clear growth in the confidence of those taking part… it showed as their ability to deliver better interviews improved continually.
David Grindlay,Team Leader Communications, Falkirk Council
I would highly recommend the media training course having spent an intense but thoroughly enjoyable day at Pink Elephant Communications. Extremely worthwhile and proud to have won the Pink Elephant trophy!

Very engaging. They knew their topic and were able to answer all of our questions with genuinely usable advice.

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.
