Newsroom Bootcamp is like no other training your staff will have experienced. No flow-charts, no mind-maps, no boring slides. In their place: phones ringing, deadlines looming, video clips bringing breaking news that needs dealing with …
Get It Done By Lunchtime gives your team a quick-hit experience with immediate impact, at a competitive price. It’s designed to be run over breakfast, during lunch, between work and the pub — or any hour you choose during the working day.
This is perfect for the event host who knows how tricky it can be to keep the audience’s attention after a good lunch. I have a range of solutions to this, including:
This aimed at the C-Suite, ready to experience a refreshing new take on quick decision making and leadership — but based on a real-time Newsroom Live experience, not a jargon-laden powerpoint.
If you’ve got some heavy lifting ahead at a Strategy Away Day, with some difficult conversations on the horizon, this could be the perfect way to open or close it … while keeping the mood light.
More confidence in quick decision-making and just getting the job done? Greater clarity of thought when writing a report or pitch that may help your company get business? Better equipping your team to be more assertive, or patient, with each other? A greater ability to handle a deadline, and boost your profits by keeping your clients happy?
15-25 works particularly well, breaking down into 3 to 5 teams of five, but I’m very flexible. A couple of hours? A morning? A day? I’m versatile, and I’ve got plenty of material.
All I need to rig up my TV Newsroom is any standard conference room with a projector, some tables and chairs. But if you want to leave the office, I can suggest some great venues.
I can point you to other business contacts who offer different types of business development and event hosting — just give me a call or drop me an email.
I like to be really upfront about this, with a sense of prices here on my website rather than only available on request. If you have a fixed budget in mind, give me a call and let’s talk it through. I’m not a believer in one-size-fits-all.
Try me for free — by signing up to my Newsroom Secrets! Every month or so I reveal a secret based on my many years in a BBC newsroom — to help you and your teams with your own deadlines and on-the-day delivery, or simply give you ideas about how to bring training, a conference or Away Day to life. Do take a look, or sign up, here.
Blogs don’t have to be long or boring — I reckon six snappy paragraphs does the job, and gives you something you will actually remember.
If you find these forms a bit annoying, just give me a call on 07850 188620 or 01273 606246 — I always like to chat about how I might be able to help.

If you do like the forms, don’t forget to put something in each box marked with a *.
