Use my experience to your advantage.
My business is framed by my BBC background – 24 years of programme-making, including Woman’s Hour and Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4.
From the start, I’ve always loved finding the hidden gems in peoples’ business stories – what drives them, what keeps them going when things go wrong and where they want to get to. That sense of purpose that makes work truly rewarding.

If coming up with regular content fills your team with trepidation, I would love to help – as I did with House of Colour:
