Media development

Thomson Media is a leader in media development delivering high-calibre training for media and public communication practitioners globally and has extensive recent experience in providing programmes in the countries neighbouring the European Union.



Media training

Skills-intensive training is at the heart of what we do. Our trainers, all with impressive journalistic credentials, focus on developing journalists' practical skills. The emphasis is on hands-on training, reporting on real stories.




Valley voices

Progress in bringing women's voices into media has been slow and reduced by local traditional structures that often favour men. We visit Pakistan's rural areas for a project designed to enhance their voices.


Being in Berlin will lead to an expansion of Thomson’s network throughout Europe and build on long-established regional partnerships with media houses and donors.
