I have been broadcasting for 30 years for the BBC and commercial companies, for regional and national stations and on TV and radio.
I have hosted programmes in almost every timeslot and format, and have been a national news editor and studio producer.
I am a published author of several books on broadcasting production and presentation, which have each been translated into several languages and are used on prestigious media courses around the world.
LIVE AND RECORDED VIDEO
The production and presentation of live mobile video is a particular passion, and I wrote the world’s first book on how to use your mobile phone to live-stream. I spoke at the inaugural ‘Periscope Community Summit’ in New York in 2015 and host weekly shows on about live-streaming techniques, tricks and tech.
TRAINER AND SPEAKER
I have devised courses surrounding broadcasting and presentation techniques and delivered them to thousands of people at the BBC and other broadcasters and educational establishments, across the UK and as far south as the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic.
Delegates have ranged from trainees to senior managers (including to Deputy Director-General level) and to high-profile presenters at each of the BBC network stations.
I have spoken at the Periscope Community Summit in New York, to Oxfam delegates in Oxford, UK, at the NewsRewired event at Reuters in London and the IMZ International Music + Media Centre in Prague.
