from the almost oldest profession…
- As a HOST/MC I have chaired TV, radio and live conference discussions, including a Brexit debate, and have presented industry awards.
- As a JOURNALIST I’ve interviewed everyone from Prime Ministers and captains of industry to Gypsies, Travellers and homeless people. I’ve covered major international stories including an air crash and a mining disaster.
- As a FUNNY SONGWRITER/PERFORMER I’ve sung on live TV dressed as a Page Three Girl from The Sun; I’ve handed out leaflets in the street while dressed as a body-sized condom, and presented a tribute to National Prune Week.
- More seriously, I’ve studied communication from the perspectives of the printed word, radio and TV; dramatic scriptwriting and storytelling; advertising and marketing; chimp behaviour and evolutionary anthropology.
During lockdown I underwent Dr Lynda Shaw’s Neuroscience Professional Development Programme, so that I could examine communication from a brain perspective.
I also received a diagnosis of Dyspraxia from occupational therapist Linda Plowden.
So I have plenty to talk about, and am a safe pair of hands!
