Hi, I’m Dave Mason.

I am Mentor Media Training's Managing Director. My extensive career in broadcasting spans 30 years across radio and television. I have coached executives from major public and private sector organisations, as well as the UK Armed Forces and NATO, around the world for the past decade.

Open courses are often hard to arrange for communications professionals engaging in their cycle of continuing professional development. I aim to make this process easier, more efficient and more useful, by creating fully accredited courses that can be watched easily over your lunch break, commute or before-work coffee. 

Previous roles: Founder at Orchard FM, Correspondent at BBC Radio 5 Live and Radio 1 Newsbeat, TV presenter, reporter and producer at ITN, GMTV, (ITV Breakfast), ITV News Westcountry and HTV West and one of GMTV’s senior producers for a decade.
