Folder Media created a series of 11 bespoke media training days designed for young engineers working in Industry. The aim was to equip them with presentation skills taught from the perspective of appearing on television and radio. It was hands on and interactive, with each day culminated with the engineers putting their new skills to the test by appearing on camera to film a demonstration of an engineering principle.
Organisations involved included University of Surrey, Airbus, Transport for London, Imagination Technologies, Crossrail, Arqiva, University College London, Qinetic and IET Birmingham and Glasgow. The workshops were attended by over 100 engineers from a wealth of engineering disciplines from electrical to civil and chemical to structural.
Feedback was overwhelmingly positive from both the delegates and the hosting companies.
