Simulation that works

We are the cutting edge of media and information simulation

Crown Media and COVID-19


At this time of exceptional crisis, not just for the UK, but the wider world, we thought we would take this opportunity to reassure our customers about Crown Media. Early this year we looked at the impact of COVID-19 in China and decided to spend some time modelling the potential impact of a pandemic and doing our own contingency planning.

The events unfolding in China were extremely worrying, both from a humanitarian point of view, and from their potential impact on business and the wider economy. For Crown Media specifically, what we learnt was reassuring. Our company was set up on a model that was lean, efficient and designed to take advantage of virtual working environments for our day to day management. As a result we're able to operate responsibly and participate in guidance to reduce day-to-day social contact and so we're able to protect our team and clients. Our company, like many others, may be blown about a bit by the virus outbreak, but we are in a very good position to come through it and bounce back strongly.

It might be a useful time to emphasise the capabilities of our people and how that might be of benefit in the current situation. We have a large pool of media specialists, press officers, journalists, camera operators, social media people, video editors, creative sound people etc. We specialise in the product of media of all kinds, very quickly and economically using news editing and production techniques. If you need any of these skills please get in touch.

In any case, best wishes to you, your family and colleagues over the coming period.

Crown media is the world leader in training through simulated media


Information simulation experts.

Providing discreet, bespoke media simulation solutions is at the heart of Crown Media’s work. Our track record is first class. Our work allows our clients to validate and improve their communications. 

Crown Media has been creating simulation and training solutions for more than 14 years. In that time, we have delivered more than 1,600 simulation solutions for individual clients. We specialise in delivering media simulation that validates an organisation’s planning and structures and stress tests the organisation’s ability to communicate both in normal times and in crisis.

Our clients are wide ranging, including the military, government departments, international organisations, the emergency services and private companies. The issues faced by the military on a major operation, the emergency services during a serious incident or a corporate organisation in the aviation industry, while all are using similar management and communication techniques they have fundamentally differing structures and communication strategies.

Every client who approaches us has a unique aspect to their communications planning and needs a simulation solution specific to their circumstance and operating environment. We treat every client’s requirements on that basis and then working with the client we design the simulation solution that will deliver the effect which they require. That may just be a media simulation solution, it may require consultancy, specific training support or even confidential video production.

We maintain a large pool of journalists, trainers and technical staff, so that we can always build the best team to fit a specific requirement. Many of our pool are UK and NATO security cleared and all have signed confidentiality agreements.

The media world does not stand still, and neither do we. Constantly analysing the news and social media environment, we are ‘futureologists’, researching new information trends and developing ways to realistically simulate them. That includes news, social media, false news and propaganda.

Crown Media provides valuable insights into the poacher's world, from a gamekeeper's perspective.

Brilliant, absolutely vital."
