Newsroom Bootcamp for Business SPECIAL EASTER OFFER!

WHO’S IT AIMED AT? It's not media training. It's more fun than that. It's about confidence and fine tuning your business skills — helping you make a tedious report sound exciting — step beyond the Comfort Zone -- and maybe even read off my portable newsreaders' autocue!
WHO’S DELIVERING IT? I'm a South East TV newsreader and reporter who’s distilled the buzz of daily newsroom life into a set of lively, funny, empowering business-focussed workshops quite unlike any other.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK? This is a TV news themed adventure based on my 28 years’ experience of hourly dilemmas, snap decisions … and just getting on with it because we're about to Go Live. In small teams on tight deadlines, you’ll decide between news stories, deal with some surprises, dash off some headlines and may read them to camera off my professional autocue. We’ll round things off by figuring out how that can help you in your own workplace with teamwork, prioritisation, time-keeping, report writing - and simply going for it!
WHO'S IT NOT AIMED AT? Anyone who wants to examine bar charts, peer at graphs, and sit in silence while I sound earnest and use a lot of jargon. As a journalist first and foremost, I count myself a jargon buster -- simply delivering take-it-or-leave-it takeaways and games based on what news reporting has taught me about getting things done in the workplace.
