"Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has worked with Media Friendly for almost a decade. I have been the Media Lead here for five years and got to know Andrew Carapiet as he trained seemingly everyone from Watch Manager level to our senior leadership team on the essentials of dealing with the media. Feedback forms are always completed by delegates and I can honestly say I have never seen one which wasn’t glowing with praise for Andrew’s experience, professionalism, sense of humour and, most importantly, his knowledge of the subject. He is poacher turned gamekeeper in its truest sense – someone who knows all the tricks of press, radio and TV folk and then gives the skills to fire service personnel to protect the ‘brand’ and avoid the much feared ‘car crash interview’! His knowledge of public sector is first class and he knows the fire service inside out so does not simply rehash his course and let us make it fit. He gives all levels the confidence to realise that they are the experts in rescue and recovery and that their most important role is to give the public much needed reassurance in times of crisis." - Jonathan, Humberside Fire & Rescue Service
