We're privileged to work with so many amazing clients in relation to athlete coaching, general media coaching and sport media management. We appreciate not just their business but their faith in us to ensure they achieve their media goals. We look forward to growing our media family with you.
My daughter Tyler Robinson was one of 20 girls selected to participate in the 2020 FIA Girls on Track Rising Stars programme in October 2020, representing South Africa. While on track performance was importantly being assessed by the FIA jury at the shootout, the girls’ behaviour and interaction with all involved and fellow participants was also going to be considered, and they would also be filmed and photographed throughout.
This was extremely daunting for Tyler. MEDIAMASTERCOACH came highly recommended. It was an absolute pleasure working with Filippa. Not only was she friendly, extremely patient and easy to work with, but she was very professional and knowledgeable. She is most certainly an expert in the field of media work and coaching, and her extensive experience showed as she covered every area of media imaginable. From social media guidelines, details on how to take photos and video, helping Tyler define her career goals, and developing interview answers to a host of questions she may be asked, I cannot fault Filippa anywhere. I am only too grateful for the invaluable assistance and support she provided, not only in preparation for programme but also during and afterwards.

Filippa has been a huge help to me and a real support network during a very low point in my career. She selflessly offered her time to me from across the globe to give me advice, a Zoom call and an in-depth review of some of my work with plenty of constructive criticism to learn from.
She has boosted my confidence at the start of my professional motorsport journey and helped me to believe in myself. I was amazed at the amount of experience and knowledge she has to offer but that she is still so humble and willing to help. She was easy to talk to and no question felt too small.
I would urge anyone to contact Filippa if they ever needed a professional, friendly, guiding hand.

For me, business relationships are built on trust, loyalty and work ethic. I demand those qualities from my staff and a contractor must display them if we are to continually engage them beyond an initial job. Filippa has been doing business with the BAM Group of companies since she took the brave step of creating her own entity. I trust her with the requirements of my business and those of my own customers. She is faultlessly loyal and smart enough to read the sensitivity of vital situations and has a tireless work ethic that sets her apart.
In 2016, I tackled the biggest challenge of my career by campaigning a car in the 100th Indianapolis 500 - the world's biggest ever one-day sporting event. It was a $U1.2 million investment for two races and the imagery we needed to collect for this life-changing event for so many could only be trusted to one person as far as I was concerned. Everything Filippa has learned on her journey can now be shared through Media Master Coach and as a corporate or individual, you will not find a better place to acquire the skills you are looking for.

Global Touring Cars had the challenge of growing from a fledgling new category – a formula created and built in South Africa – to one that we wanted to be internationally accepted. The only way that would happen is if we invested in industry-leading media plans and people, and that’s where Filippa came in. We contracted Filippa to run all of our television and communications, and she brought such a broad range of international experience and passion, that we just grew from strength to strength.
Not only did she look after all of the television producing/directing, editing, crewing, and commentary sessions for our highlights programs, she also ran all social media, press releases, website, graphic design, general communications and brand management… and that’s all by managing a media team working across three continents! Our media value grew from R96.5m in 2016 to more than R208m by the end of 2018.
She also had the creativity to integrate our teams, drivers and fans into PR initiatives and driver team building events which really made GTC feel like a family. Let alone the standard of our TV programs being considered by SuperSport as the best locally produced motorsport programs on the network.
With such growth, we gained international interest because of it. Filippa was an integral part of the growth of GTC and we would have no hesitation in having her back when the South African economy improves.

I have been organising and running academies for motorsport competitors since 2013 for Motorsport South Africa and typically invite a media professional as guest lecturer. Filippa really raised the bar to new heights. Filippa's unique experience as a motorsport journalist in all forms of media, and her work both behind and in front of the camera, afford her an unusually broad perspective of the topic and enable her to share unique insights to develop athlete’s perspective and understanding.
Filippa’s presentations and content are well thought out and presented, and she engages the audience with both the content and her personality to bring the message across effectively. Her broad experience in multiple countries and continents are shared and well-illustrated with numerous examples from her own experience. I have not had the opportunity of working with Filippa on more advanced individual coaching, however, from what I've seen to date, I would really welcome the chance to do so should it arise.

Filippa has been a mentor for me as a videographer and media professional for the past two years. She has helped me in so many ways, from technical and creative feedback, to the business side of things with quoting and templates.
Female creatives in motorsport are few and far between, and I feel so grateful to have Filippa as a business and media coach. Anyone who works with her will be blown away by her knowledge, professionalism and dedication to creating and teaching.

I recently participated in media coaching with Filippa and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The coaching was very hands-on and each lesson was detailed and customised to my specific requirements.
The lessons we went through taught me how to compose and present myself on camera, how to interview people and then techniques around editing videos for the best presentation.
Filippa is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of media presenting and was very easy to talk with. I would highly recommend Filippa to anyone looking for media coaching. She is professional, experienced and a pleasure to work with.

Filippa delivered a concise and thoughtful seminar called “Media for Start-Ups” and a cynic like me became a convert. Filippa explained social media, branding and logo concepts in simple terms but I know that accepting her advice and guidance will make a maximum impact in my sports business.
Filippa’s unique perspective and her years of experience come in very handy for a person in my industry looking to maximise the promotional options of those I represent and to set them out from the crowd.
I am a cricket agent and as an advocate for young professional athletes I have seen many times how talented individuals on the field have failed to utilise the benefits of social, print and broadcast media and indeed actively avoid it! I am very interested to work with Filippa in order to instil confidence in those I represent and turn around the fear of interviews into an asset.
Filippa is warm and friendly but commands a room with her intelligence, her clarity and also the infectious drive that exudes from her words and explanations. Filippa has motivated me to take control of the social media aspects of my business and to ensure my brand is heading in the same direction as my ultimate goals. I look forward to learning more from her and working again with her.

I worked alongside Filippa and her media agency as part of the media team in the South African GTC (Global Touring Cars) Championship. The consistent drive for excellence, creative thinking and modern approach exhibited by Filippa are traits that made a lasting impressing from very early on.
When we formed Brandsponenial in 2020, we contacted Filippa to assist us in visualising the portrayal of our brand, as well as advise style guidelines to follow. Very quickly into the initial meeting, we knew that we shared the same ideas, which left us confident to allow her to set the course for the project.
Within a relatively short time, we received the final product which we are very happy with. The only reason why we would not state that the Driven Media Group exceeded our expectations is because we knew exactly what quality work and service to expect. We are looking forward to working with Filippa in future and would recommend her to all potential clients who are serious about setting trends instead of following them.

I've known Filippa for nearly 15 years and I cannot think of anyone who puts so much passion and dedication into her work. We've worked on many creative projects together in Supercars – of which I create all the official car livery artwork for – and I'm constantly blown away about how she is so naturally gifted with her media skills; her sixth sense for what is a good story is second to none. She is a trailblazer for women in this industry, has worked extremely hard to make a name for herself on many continents, and I class her as an authority in her field.

We worked on several video productions together, and Filippa is not only extremely capable, efficient and an expert in creating superb looking video content that effectively tells a story, but is also very hard working, determined to produce the best output that can be achieved, and not afraid to stop and give useful and highly constructive advice and guidance. Highly self-reliant, unflinching in dedication and a joy to work with.

I have known Filippa for over 10yrs during her time working in motorsport as a journalist and TV producer. I have witnessed her work ethic, as we worked at various events, and she is extremely dedicated to her job and clients. She recently helped me with copywriting and has also been a great help with mentoring and business coaching over the years.
