I am an award-winning broadcaster and social media producer with 30 years' experience in national and regional radio and TV,

for the BBC and commercial companies.

 

    Hello! I'm Peter.

    I've been around voice and audio all my working life.

    Trained by the BBC and London's Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, my 'on-air miles' on radio, TV and podcasts add up to thousands of hours.

    I've coached hundreds of broadcasters in all styles of radio (from pop music stations such as Capital FM and BBC Radio 1, to Heart FM and the classical music station BBC Radio 3), and TV presenters on the BBC News Channel.

        EXPERTISE
         
        I'M BBC TRAINED

        I was trained by the BBC in news reading, programme presentation and voice, and then went on to train some of the biggest household names in the skills I'd gone on to develop myself.

        But more than that, I've also been trained by the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London.

        I'VE GOT THE T-SHIRT!

        Not only have I been trained, and trained others, but I've done the job they're doing: TV and radio voiceovers, commercials, news bulletins... as well as presenting programmes as diverse as sports, phone-ins, Top 40, interviews, gardening... and even a soul and disco show!

        I'M EVERYWHERE!

        Add in my thousands of podcasts and Flash Briefings on Alexa devices, webinars, lectures and keynotes at prestigious events such as Reuters in London, and the books on audio and video presentation and production... Phew!
