After fifteen years working in breaking news and features in national newsrooms in the UK and Abu Dhabu, I have put my skills to use in media training, PR, copywriting and public speaking. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
An experienced media trainer, my courses include: getting the best from media relations, writing skills coaching to on-camera broadcast training. I co-founded a media training business which I ran for seven years and have delivered hundreds of bespoke training courses to CEOs, executive teams, PR agencies, academics, analysts and authors. Clients have included Wood Mackenzie, London South Bank and Coventry Universities, Betty TV and Marks & Spencer.
As well as being a staff writer at the Independent, Independent on Sunday, the Press Association and the National, in Abu Dhabi, my journalism has appeared in all UK national newspapers as well as international publications, such as Stern magazine, Mainichi Shinbun and The National in Abu Dhabi.
While crowdfunding to publish Girl With A Gun, I interviewed my co-author Diana Nammi about her life as a freedom fighter in Iran in dozens of sell-out talks around the country. Aged just seventeen, Diana Nammi joined the now famed peshmerga fighting force to defend her community when Kurdistan was attacked by the new Islamic regime in 1979. This fascinating interview details her part in the Iranian revolution, her twelve years on the frontline and her fight to champion women’s rights. Get in touch to book this event.
