Mentor's New Structure

Mentor Digital is an established full-service digital agency based in Bristol. After 12 years of working alongside Media Media Training as divisions of Mentor Communications Consultancy Ltd, we are pleased to announce that Mentor Media Training has now been acquired in a management buyout by its lead consultant, former BBC and ITV journalist, Dave Mason. With Dave’s exciting venture now underway, and Mentor Media Training relocating to Bath during 2020, we are keen to clarify Mentor Digital position and share further details with you.

Managed by Holland Risley, Managing Director and Toby Coulsting, Operations Director, Mentor Communications Consultancy Ltd will continue to trade as Mentor Digital in Bristol. Mentor Digital will continue to prioritise and focus growth specifically on our full-service web design, development, digital and video offering. Mentor Digital will continue to invest in our specialist skillset of Umbraco CMS, website and software development, UX and responsive design, digital consultancy, project leadership, digital marketing, animation and video production. 

We would like to assure our current Digital clients that there will be no change to our day to day running of the business or client accounts as a result of the changes to Mentor Media Training. Toby Coulsting, who has been with the digital team for 9 years, said;

‘’Media Training was the foundation of Mentor Communications Consultancy Ltd, and we wish Dave Mason every success as he takes the reins of the Media Training business.

In the past 12 years, the Digital business has grown rapidly. The Digital business represented around 90% of our turnover during 2019, and by focusing our business on the core Digital services, we can see Mentor Digital and our output for clients continuing to go from strength to strength.”

The recent development comes with exciting opportunities for Mentor Digital, as early 2020 will see the unveiling of our new brand and some fantastic new software, websites and design projects. January 2020 sees the relaunch of new websites for some of our long-standing clients, including Tenpin Ltd and several clients new to Mentor with large scale website launches, so watch this space…
