The Mangold Consultancy came to us highly recommended. Abby and her team didn’t disappoint, they really took the time to understand our business and the journey we were on and ensured the sessions met all of our objectives. The Mangold Consultancy undertook media training for both live television and face to face interview as well as presentation training for our senior team. The sessions were tough, focused, informative and enjoyable and we look forward to working with them again.

Abby was quickly able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of our spokesperson. This meant the presentation and media interview workshop was candid and invaluable from the start. She has a remarkable ability to identify any weaknesses, deal with them, then inspire senior executives – a skill that means we will be using her again.

Abby gave us invaluable insight and advice which ensured we developed a robust and credible approach when handling a challenging, and unjust, media allegation….she was a joy to work with – dedicated, professional and very candid.

I thought your advice about dealing with a social media storm was very useful. Hopefully I’ll never have to use it in a crisis situation!

Having been with the BBC for so many years Abby understands exactly what journalists are looking for.  Her media training is sharply focused, builds confidence, and is invaluable to anyone about to face the press

I needed to use Abby because of a challenging media enquiry.  She was absolutely brilliant – clear, calm, directional and above all, completely savvy about both the position we were in and the way to tackle heavyweight journalists head on.  I would definitely use her again. 

PR Manager FMCG brand

Abby has extraordinary nous when it comes to handling issues.  She instinctively knows when a problem will make news and when, in all likelihood, it will die of its own accord.  Her experience at the BBC is invaluable.  She knows what questions to ask, what the client should do and what they should leave well alone.

Ali GeeDeputy CEO FleishmanHillard Fishburn

I was very pleased to work with Abby.  What impressed me most was her thorough levels of preparation which in my experience too many media trainers often ignore.  Abby also has a lovely calm demeanour when dealing with clients and the media training we undertook together was extremely important in preparing the client for major media exposure.
