Who are BDG? What do they do?


“Not every communicator is a leader.  But EVERY great leader is a great communicator.”


There are two primary elements to the Broadcast Development Group's services.  We work with:

1. Professional Television & Radio broadcasters throughout Africa and the Middle East.  Currently BDG Communications works with the Cricket and Rugby Presenters and Commentators on DSTV's SuperSport – assisting them to make the transition from professional sportsmen and women to professional broadcaster.  We also maintain an on-going 'watching brief'

2. C.E.O's, EXCO’s and Senior Managers seeking to project and protect their images or brands in the Media

BDG Communications, using its strong background in Television, Radio and Media relations, excels at providing experiential Training Workshops.  These directly address vulnerable communication styles, enabling delegates to skillfully rectify problem areas and use “how they communicate” to best effect.  Beyond their Media Interventions these skills enable highly effective communication between all levels in an organisation.

The ability to communicate effectively is a key to success, not only in broadcasting, but in life generally.  Increasingly, the skills taken into the broadcast industry are being sought for business.

BDG Communications offers a comprehensive range of best-practice communication and Media Training designed to improve your ability to influence, motivate and inspire others.

We continue to provide our customers with real value in the art and science of communications with 20 years of delivery experience.

Whether you’re a Chief Executive, a Broadcasting personality, in Management or Sales, we will equip you to meet the communication challenge.
