This is my Blog Page …

… but I call it “Top Tips” because “Blog” sounds a bit tedious. My aim in each post is to give you a pithy little tip, nicked from my adventures in the newsroom, that you might find useful in your workplace.

Try it for yourself ...



Every few weeks I create my TV Newsroom in a funky events room above a pub next to Brighton Station.   It’s a great venue to try it out, whether you’re a sole trader wanting to enjoy its benefits, or a manager wondering if it would be right for your team.  It’s also a chance to meet other like-minded business-people, without the awkwardness of a formal networking event.

My next event is pencilled in for Friday 9 February, 2018.

Here are details of my most recent event -- do give me a call or email me to go on the waiting list for February!
