Corporate Training

Ellen Gunning gave her first corporate training session as part of a course for Gardaí, organised by FX Carty at DIT Aungier Street, Dublin in 1985. She has been training ever since. When she formed the Irish Academy of Public Relations in 1991 the training was incorporated under that banner. There have been a lot of changes since the early days and we now have a range of courses and experts to help your company be the best in the business!

Range of courses

We are communications specialists and will create a training course which specifically addresses the needs of your organisation. Our courses are always practical and interactive. Our aim is to enhance the skillsets of your communications team.
Our trainers are highly skilled professionals whose expertise is at your disposal. You will get firsthand experience from passionate experts who are ready to teach your company everything there is to know about the world of communications and media. There is always more to learn so why not start here? These courses give your company the opportunity to be the best in the business!

Our trainers

We are extraordinarily fortunate to have trainers who work in print and broadcast journalism including TV and radio. We have trainers who are public relations consultants, social media experts and event management professionals. All of our trainers work in the communications industry on a daily basis.
Their expertise ensures that our clients get cutting-edge, best practice, up-to-the-minute information and examples. They are passionate about what they do.


All of our courses are bespoke. Their content is determined by the needs of our clients. We have provided training on how to manage events, write press releases and structure newsletters. We have prepared clients for radio and television interviews, taught others to pitch for business and trained more on how to deliver winning presentations. We have helped companies create their own stylebooks and trained others to manage social media effectively. We believe that communications is an area where you need to employ specialists. Media and communications is changing rapidly. You need experts who are working at the coalface. Because we are experts in communications, we can train you to handle the entire range of communications challenges. We can structure a course to meet your specific communications needs.

We come to you

Training is offered on site. We come to you because we understand how today’s busy commercial environment can make it difficult to travel. By providing training on site, our courses are more convenient for both yourself and your colleagues. The exception is radio and television interviews. We firmly believe in bringing you to the studio. Preparing someone for aural or visual presentations is best done in studio, where audio and video recording facilities are available, and the person can experience not only the training but the environment in which their skills will be tested.
