I’m the TV reporter who will help you or your team write snappier reports, run tighter meetings, get more done on a deadline …

 … because in TV Newsrooms, we do all three by lunchtime.

“This was effective, professional, insightful and thought-provoking.  You reminded us that sometimes the ‘obvious’ things are the ones that work.”

 Mark Lever, Head of Corporate Affairs, Gatwick Airport 

I’ll share with you the secrets to on the day productivity that I’ve learnt after nearly thirty years in busy BBC newsrooms.  So you get: 

— an exhilarating keynote or workshop that you’ll be thanked for 

— interactive training with in-your-face, you-can-do-this-tomorrow takeaways (otherwise, what’s the point?) 

— delivery on site (no need to hire a minibus to head to an activity centre: I create my workshop “newsroom” in your office)

— a fun experience from someone you can trust (I still work in a BBC newsroom two days a week, though this is not a BBC product).

News is fast, news needs focus, news demands deadlines — and everyone’s got an opinion.  They’re probably skills you want your team to develop, too.  That’s why my KEYNOTE AND WORKSHOPS deliver immediate results.  The very next day, you’ll be able to use my tips on hitting a deadline, focussing a meeting and getting things done.  Then and there.

It’s my background in TV News that also makes me a safe choice to HOST YOUR EVENT.  My many years’ experience in a live TV studio mean you don’t have to worry about timekeeping, whatever may be going on behind the scenes …

Free Guide to Getting Work Experience in the Media (or in any other competitive industry …)

Download this guide if you are often asked “can you offer me/my daughter/a lovely young person I know some work experience”?

I wrote it because it’s a question I’m asked so often — and I wanted to be able to offer young people practical tips, as well as words of encouragement.  For some, it may be a tough read — but its message is: if you’re proactive, you’re half way there.

(By the way, for safeguarding reasons, I don’t accept contact details from anyone under 18 years old — so if that’s you, please ask an adult to download it for you.  And good luck!)
