Paul has more than twenty years' experience as a journalist across print, radio and television. As a young hack on his local evening paper, he won a UK Press Gazette award for investigative journalism before moving into broadcasting.
Over the years, he has worked across regional and network newsrooms for the BBC, ITV and Five News as a reporter, producer and presenter. Paul’s interviewees have been as diverse as Nobel Prize winners to Big Brother “celebrities”.
As a news correspondent, he covered countless general elections, floods and major trials and helped his evening magazine programme secure an RTS Award for news coverage - twice.
Away from live television and the studio sofa, Paul has a wealth of experience in media training and presentational coaching. He works with public, private and third sector clients including global CEOs, politicians, academics, health and education leaders and international diplomats. This includes crisis simulations, key message management, studio exercises and speech writing.
"Very useful to have 'real' journalists running the course. A definite bonus and it made the course very credible.”
