I’m always pleased to receive invitation to speak, lecture or debate and try to fit in as many such engagements as I can.


"" In recent years I have lectured at:

  • Westminster University
  • CELSA, Sorbonne, Paris
  • The Westminster Foundation
  • Tsinghua University, Beijing
  • International School, Toulouse
  • The Qatar Foundation
  • City University Journalism School

I have spoken at:

  • Edinburgh Television Festival
  • The Guardian Hay on Wye Festival
  • The Inverness Book Fair
  • John Smith Trust
  • The Norwegian Public Relations Association

I have debated motions on politics and journalism at:

  • The Oxford Union
  • The Durham Union
  • Intelligence Squared

My media training work is usually on a personal, one-to-one basis but I am also available for larger groups. Most of my clients would, I am sure, prefer to remain anonymous but they include several Cabinet and other government ministers, authors, company board members, charity officials, even a rather well known stand up comedian who likes to wear women’s clothes.


I have done media and political consultancy for, among others, Britain in Europe, Digital UK and the Labour Party in the UK, Norway and Malta.

Recent speeches & debates:
Edinburgh TV Festival 2009, John Smith Trust, Hay Festival, Oxford Union, Intelligence Squared, Royal Geographic Society, Qatar Foundation, International School Toulouse, University of Westminster.
