Workshops that help your teams communicate, solve problems and make the right decisions … by lunchtime.

Because in a TV newsroom, we do that every day.

I’m a TV news reporter who 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 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.

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!)
