Hi. After 40 years as a magazine editor, travel writer and BBC broadcaster I’ve jumped ship, tucking teaching and coaching qualifications under my belt to enable creatives climb the journalism ladder, progress their careers and make sense of digital content and social media.

I”m now an accredited coach and mentor specialising in helping freelancers increase their earnings. I’m also a visiting lecturer in journalism at a couple of London universities and at the City Lit.

So far I’ve worked with some 800 plus journalists in classes, individually, or in a pitch clinic.

I offer a 10 minute FREE telephone consultation so that you can sound me out before booking your first session. So do get in touch, in person, by phone or on Skype.
