our background

BrightsparkTV was founded by director and presenter Ian Blandford. Since 2006 we’ve grown into one of the world’s leading presentation companies, sharing our insights with experts, CEO’s, academics, journalists, elite athletes and chefs. Many of the household names you watch on your TV screens have been trained by us. We’re proud to count all the leading broadcasters, agents and production companies in the U.K as clients.


In essence, what BrightsparkTV does is simple. We coach you to be a confident version of yourself. You’ll leave us understanding the mechanics of television, the practical aspects of how to communicate successfully and the psychology of perception.

These tools will free you you to communicate your passion and grow your reputation.

It’s powerful, life changing stuff and many of our clients tell us that working with BrightsparkTV has lead to positive changes in the way they operate, not just in the workplace but in their everyday lives.

Don't just take our word for it

The service Ian provides is exceptional. We go to him regularly for help with our talent led films. I don’t know how he does it but it always has a hugely beneficial impact on each production. He keeps projects totally confidential, empowers the team and is a delight to work with.
