About and Contact

IMG_9991David Banks has trained thousands of people for hundreds of organisations over 20 years as a trainer.  He has worked with newspapers, magazine, broadcasters and web publishers. He also works with local and central government and their agencies; private companies; charities and NGOs; universities and students’ unions, police and the armed forces.

As well, as being legally qualified, David draws on years of experience as a journalist – working for national and regional newspapers, magazines and the web – in the training and advice he delivers.

David was co-author of three editions of McNae’s Essential Law for Journalists, the ‘bible’ of law for the media. He has advised the Ministry of Justice and when the Crown Prosecution Service wanted its top prosecutors to be trained in the law and ethics of the media who report on their cases, they called on David to deliver the training.

Why us?

The training we deliver is tailored to you. Before we deliver a session we will have a conversation to determine exactly what you do and what your people need to know. That way we can design the training around your needs so it delivers precisely the learning you want.

The training we deliver is no dusty lecture or dull presentation. David’s sessions are illustrated throughout by the stories and anecdotes gathered during his career, which bring the issues he explains to life, entertainingly and memorably. It is typical of those attending for the first time to say they never expected training to be so entertaining.

Most importantly, those attending remember the lessons they have learnt and they are able to apply them in their work. This is why David’s clients book him time and time again and you can see their comments on our testimonials page.
