Sutton and East Surrey Water


Media and crisis media training for the executive team. This was especially urgent during periods of national water shortages. In addition, Hawkeye Media created Video News Releases as well several films for education and PR purposes.


“Surrey House Corporate Communication has worked with Helen Glanville of Hawkeye Media for the past eight years in the areas of media and crisis media training, PR support, videos and video news releases. We have always found Helen to be reliable, highly professional and quick to understand complex issues. Among other work, Helen has provided several media/crisis media training sessions for senior executives at Sutton and East Surrey Water. Although some of the delegates were already highly proficient, there was a substantial improvement in their performances in terms of both messaging and delivery. The interviews were extremely challenging, replicating the toughest interviews executives would ever face. Despite the pressure, they all enjoyed the day. Helen produced a video news release for SESW which she then cut into a VNR and an excellent educational and promotional film. This provided a cost-effective and versatile series of videos. Following a day’s media training, we employed Helen to maximise publicity for Treloars, the highly regarded school and college for severely disabled young people. This resulted in unprecedented publicity ranging from an hour-long documentary to features on Newsnight and Blue Peter.”
