I'm a lecturer and coach at the world leading Judge Business School, part of the University of Cambridge, and a former BBC News Correspondent with 20 years' experience.

  • Social media strategy
  • Speech writing
  • Branding
  • Websites

I teach all areas of communications for the Civil Service College, working with governments both in the United Kingdom and overseas.

For all your communications needs, I'm here to help.
