I’m the TV reporter who’ll help you tackle your communications, your productivity and your storytelling … by lunchtime. 

Because in newsrooms, we do all three, several times a day.

“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 

My clients include ...

In my TV News themed workshops you and your teams will become as agile as a journalist on a lunchtime deadline. 

… you’ll discover how journalists write messages that land, because you’ll only have had eight minutes to write them.

… you’ll find out how to spot and tell stories in hours, rather than days – and how that can help your internal communications. 

… you’ll communicate in the language your clients actually understand, because I won’t let you write  jargon. 

… you’ll leave with Do-It-Tomorrow Takeaways … not just theory you can think about and forget.

… you’ll be in a safe space — because I come to you, you don’t have to come to me.

And it’ll be fun — because I’m a working BBC journalist with 30 years’ experience.  And journalists don’t do Powerpoint.

How I help Businesses …

Businesses have never needed to be more agile.

If that’s a skill you’d like your own teams to develop – or you’re looking for a Keynote Speaker to share the secrets of TV newsroom agility with your audience – I can help.

My WORKSHOPS will give you and your staff techniques you can use the very next day – to focus a meeting, make a key decision, hit a deadline, secure a sale.

My background in TV News also makes me a safe choice to SPEAK AT 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!)
