About us

Who we are

Refine Media works with a wide-range of companies, including PR firms, teaching executives media interview strategy and showing them how journalists work. We conduct mock interviews to put executives through their paces. Some of our most recent happy customers include: Experian, World Wide Fund, R.M. Williams, MoneyMe, Agent99, Fuel Communications and WordStorm PR. We bring high-end camera equipment to film the interviews and play the footage back immediately after filming to allow for instant feedback.

The service is provided by Refine Media’s Simon Palan, who has 15 years journalism experience, including 9 years as a business & finance reporter and anchor at ABC TV News, Sydney. During his time at ABC, Simon also produced & presented his own TV show called the Consumer Quarter on ABC News 24. He has also written for various print media, including the Sydney Morning Herald.

During the media training sessions, Simon shares his intimate knowledge of media trends and interviewing techniques, as well as his vast experience helping executives appear calm and confident on camera.

Simon Palan enriches our media training program by providing the context, perspective and insights of someone who has worked in the industry. In our program, he has interviewed senior executives on a topic of choice, and then has used the footage taken to encourage constructive feedback and further refine their skills. I am pleased to recommend his work.
