Martyn James is an award-winning broadcaster, columnist, public relations and consumer rights expert, with two decades of experience working with the UK’s leading journalists and broadcasters.

Consumer rights expert

With twenty years of experience as an expert and commentator, I’m recognised as one of the leading consumer rights specialists and champions in the UK.

I’ve made 7,000 appearances on television and radio since I began broadcasting and last year my comments, guides and advice featured on 4,000 occasions in Britain’s top publications.

I’ve also won numerous awards, including Headline Money’s Expert of the Year, as voted by business, consumer and personal finance journalists.


I’m an award-winning media relations expert, columnist and presenter with two decades of experience working with the UK’s leading journalists and broadcasters. I’m also a money and consumer rights specialist and a regular commentator for television and radio with all national newspapers and leading online publications. As a journalist, I’ve written over 1,000 published columns in the national press and for over 100 papers around the UK.

Eight years ago, I set up Martyn James Media to provide hands-on media relations advice and support to some of the UK’s leading organisations and businesses. I launched my creative services in 2022 to promote my broadcast, publishing and creative work.

Every year, I feature in over 4,000 news and broadcast features, including over 400 TV and radio broadcasts. This media coverage generated the equivalent of £23 million in advertising revenue and was seen over 1.1 billion times last year

Martyn and I devised and delivered a range of media and messaging sessions together, working with founders of small businesses to leaders of global companies. He has a huge depth of knowledge and insight and is adept at getting the best out of participants.
