Talking Heads provides training services for marketing, PR and communications professionals. We deliver bespoke training for agency and in-house teams and Open Courses for those looking to enhance and improve individual skills.

The business was founded by experienced PR agency MD Lis Anderson in 2005, after she wanted to find a cost effective way of delivering quality training and skills development to her team in Bristol.

Frustrated by the choice of courses, experience of trainers and the limiting costs of sending staff to London (train, time, overnight accommodation, course fees) she set up the Talking Heads network, bringing leading industry experts to the South West region and inviting PR agencies to share costs of hosting and hospitality.

The concept proved overwhelmingly successful and Talking Heads has continued to grow since with a real focus still on ‘by practitioners for practitioners’. The business now delivers courses in Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and London covering a wide range of marketing communications disciplines including social media strategy and content creation to twitter training, blogging and campaign planning.
