A brilliant mix of journalism and acting skills… a real confidence booster!
Jenny McCulloch, CLIC Sargent
I very much enjoyed the media training session I undertook with Tony as part of a Voscur staff and trustee training initiative. The session gave me some great tips and improved both my ability and confidence to deal effectively with the media.
Phil Parry, Management Consultant and Interim Manager
Excellent! Very practical and extremely relevant to my work.
Deborah Watson, Shell International
I attended Tony Coll’s Media Workshop today in Bristol that gave training in radio and camera interviews. This was a brilliant workshop that enabled all participants to perform with confidence. I highly recommend to all organisations and especially social enterprises.
Bob Northey, Visit Cornwall - Cornwall Tourist Board

Tony was a pleasure to work with and produced a super video for us on a really tight budget. He went well beyond the extra mile to meet our expectations and we were really pleased with the result. He is creative, flexible, dependable and was professional at all times.
Lisa Lavia, Noise Abatement Society
Tony Coll is a talented and funny man with enormous integrity – an original thinker with a flair for humour and an amazing ability to create amusing and absorbing stories that raise dry, everyday life-situations to a bright and interesting level. This rare skill enables Tony to delight clients with an approach to communication that is at once incisive and effective.
Andy Moore, HandyFish Productions
Tony is the best scriptwriter I’ve worked with – creative but also down-to-earth. He never ignores a brief but is also prepared to contribute good ideas. He also makes the whole process a pleasure – a great guy to work with.
Magnus Carter, Mentor Communications
Thank you so much, it is very professional and as one of my staff said, ‘it’s just like a BBC documentary’ …… I LOVE IT!!!!
Carol Pitman, SureStart
Thank you very much for all the work on the DVD. You were a pleasure to work with. We are delighted with the final result and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other organisations if the opportunity arises
