Media tsar signs up for the Digital Awards on transfer deadline day

February 2nd, 2015

THE man who taught soccer stars Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott how to behave in front of the TV cameras has signed up to the Digital Awards as a sponsor.

Former BBC TV and radio journalist, Robin Bailey, runs Capricorn Media Training and organises training workshops for businesses and the sports industry throughout the UK.

His company Capricorn Media Training has now become a sponsor of the Surrey Digital Awards, Essex Digital Awards, Kent Digital Awards and the soon-to-be-launched Hertfordshire Digital Awards.

Since leaving the sports desk at BBC Radio Five Live and BBC TV News 24 a few years ago, Mr Bailey has been organising bespoke training sessions to help CEOs, MDs and sports stars to make an impact when they do interviews on TV, radio and with the press.

In the past few months Mr Bailey has created workshops for a global recruitment company, an online estate agent and a Premiership rugby club managing director, and he has run media training for two European Tour golfers and the Rugby Football League.

He counts Theo Walcott, Gareth Bale and Adam Lallana among his most famous footballer clients and Sam Tomkins and Sam Burgess from the world of rugby.

The use of video is at the heart of Capricorn’s media training.

“Watching back how my clients perform on camera strengthens their image and messaging while building confidence in a skill that is invaluable in all walks of life,” Mr Bailey revealed.

“But Capricorn is also a video production house, which encourages companies to use video on the web and in social media.”
