A communications expert and author with expertise in both traditional and social media
Alan Stevens is Past President of the Global Speakers Federation, Director of MediaCoach Ltd, an author and journalist, and has been both a TV presenter and expert interviewee. In the latter capacity, he has notched up over 2,000 radio and TV interviews, so is uniquely placed to give insights about the media, and how individuals and organisations can improve their image.
He is a regular conference chairman and facilitator at global conferences across a range of topics including Human Resources, Communication and Manufacturing Industries, providing peace of mind and reliability for conference organisers. In the past ten years, he has chaired conferences in Europe, America and the Middle East. His relaxed and confident style ensures that events run to a precise timetable, delegates are kept informed of all arrangements, and speakers are introduced and questioned in an entertaining and informative manner.
He is the only person in Europe with professional accreditation in both public speaking (FPSA, PSAE) and public relations (MCIPR). He is also a member of Meeting Professionals International (MPI)
His entertaining and informative presentations include:
- Free publicity that's worth a fortune
- Media Disasters (and how to avoid them)
- The 7 secrets of media professionals
- Tales from the Green Room
- What do Journalists want? (and how to sell it to them)

His company, MediaCoach, provides coaching in TV and radio skills to CEOs, politicians, celebrities and communication professionals. His clients include Tanni Grey-Thompson and round-the world sailor Dee Caffari, as well as companies including Virgin, BMW, Glaxo, The Dorchester, Sony Ericsson, Guinness World Records, The Dubai Stock Exchange, BMW and Mumm Champagne. In 2006, The Independent listed him alongside Max Clifford as “one of the top 10 media experts in the UK”.
Despite once presenting a show that no-one watched, and occasionally appearing as a Scottish shopkeeper in an Italian soap, he still appears regularly on radio and television in the UK. His latest book, The Pocket Media Coach, is published by HowToBooks. BBC Presenter Adrian Chiles says “Alan gives you the one thing you need – confidence”. His latest book - "Ping" - tells you how to integrate traditional and social media to boost your profile and profits.
