As a British-Canadian, I’m expected to be self-deprecating, unpretentious, even modest.
Read my regular media column, WATCHING THE WATCHDOG, here on Huffington Post Canada however, and you’ll find that I exhibit few of those virtues when it comes to my skills as a writer, communications coach and broadcast journalism trainer.
What you’ll find instead is that I’m a first class writer who's also one of the best communications coaches and broadcast journalism trainers around.
I know my stuff.
AS A WRITER, I can handle just about any style (except jargon, bafflegab and bureaucratese) and any subject (except quantum mathematics and how Xi Jinping became General Secretary of the Communist Party of China).
I specialize in storytelling. In writing with clarity, intelligence, verve and even wit. In taking the complex and making it simple. In clarifying information and bringing understanding.
AS A COMMUNICATIONS COACH, I can help you write better, sharper, more effective papers and speeches and deliver those speeches convincingly, with panache confidence and conviction.
AS A BROADCAST JOURNALISM TRAINER, I’ve worked with thousands of broadcast journalists in hundreds of workshops in a dozen countries. I have no doubt I can seriously polish your storytelling, writing, performing and interviewing skills.
All at very reasonable prices.
In fact, I’m so confident that I can help make you a better writer, speechmaker, interviewee or broadcast journalist that I offer this GUARANTEE: if you’re not entirely satisfied, I’ll refund half your fee — as long as you buy the beer afterwards.
So refresh your skills. Have an experienced, discreet eye and ear check out what you’re doing and help you do it a lot better.
