Communications workshop (without the boring PowerPoint stuff)

No-Bull Newsroom is a communications workshop set in a TV newsroom. It teaches the art of clear and succinct communication… by lunchtime.

Your teams will leave the workshop with the ability to tell stories in minutes – because with a fast-approaching lunchtime deadline, there’s no time for waffle.

Internal  and external communications training, newsroom style

Led by a TV journalist with more than 30 years’ experience at the BBC, the course is unlike any other communications training your staff will have experienced before.

There are no yawn-provoking PowerPoint slides.  Not even a glimpse.  The workshop is energetic and challenging – and above all, it’s effective.

  • Faced with a looming news deadline, your staff will learn how to communicate with swift efficiency.
  • It’s all about clear English. No wasted words (and definitely no business jargon).
  • Which news stories should make the headlines? They’ll learn to debate and argue their case with clarity.
  • … and then breaking news throws everything out of the window.

This course offers more than the buzz of a TV newsroom. It can transform internal and external communication, strengthen team relationships and turbo-charge productivity.

Flexible and versatile workshops (for the easily bored) — delivered online, or face-to-face.

The workshop will be customised to fit your organisation.  It could be the quick hit adrenaline of a 60-minute session, a half day or a whole day of training.

Numbers?  Between 15 and 25 people work well – although it’s perfectly OK to have larger or smaller groups.

A bit about me

I’m John Young, a TV journalist who worked in regional and national newsrooms at the BBC for more than 30 years – often meeting the strict deadline of the lunchtime news bulletin.  I only left in October 2020, so my material and take-aways are bang up to date.

This means that I’m used to communicating clearly, summing up complex ideas in a few sentences, and making decisions … by lunchtime.

I can help your teams do the same.  They’ll get more stuff done.

Ready to get started? Call me on 07850 188620 or 01273 606246.
