Ten months on: how my training stuck for easyJet’s senior managers

“Nine months after your visit, John, I still regularly use those techniques you shared about gathering big information and boiling it down, under pressure.  It was a lot of fun — and it really stuck.”  

David Morgan, Director of Flight Operations, easyJet

I’m a BBC TV news reporter – who also runs professional communications workshops, problem-solving training and confidence workshops .

If you’re a fan of PowerPoint, look away now … because this isn’t typical corporate training. My workshops are based on a real-time TV newsroom experience.

So, you may be wondering … what does a TV Newsroom have in common with the world of business?

  • in a news headline, there’s no room for waffle. Your staff will learn the art of clear communication.
  • with a lunchtime news deadline fast approaching, they’ll discover how to sift through complex information to find the key messages … agility in action.
  • breaking news always throws a spanner in the works.  I share the secrets of keeping calm and resilient in the face of shifting priorities.

The workshops are exciting, challenging, fun and most importantly, they’re effective.  Your staff will come away re-energised, with skills that can instantly be put to use in their professional lives.  They’re my own product, not the BBC’s, but are based on more than thirty years’ experience working at the Corporation, at the sharp end of the business.
