Is your audience listening to you?

Is your audience listening to you?

I’ve got the radio on in the background. Then a Strauss Waltz comes on. I stop what I’m doing, and I listen. I know classical music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (as we say in the UK). But recently I’ve switched from BBC Radio 4 (mostly a talk station – politics,...

“After my stroke, it took me 15 minutes to walk 200 metres, and each time I did this I could see the marginal gain”. This was Michael Johnson being interviewed this week on how his stroke affected him last year. You may remember that he won Olympic double gold in...

Congratulations to the outstanding England Men’s Cricket Team who won the World Cup on Sunday for the first time. And congratulations to the amazing team at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London who separated the conjoined twin girls this month. Extraordinary work by...

Would your colleagues’ presentations pass the test?

The young man sitting in front of me is intently reading a book entitled Arrive Alive. This week I’m lucky enough to be in Florida and I’m on a bus going into Orlando.  From what I can see the book is similar to the UK’s Highway Code which sets out the rules of the...

I’ve been living in Derby for 4 years. As I cycle around the City I’m noticing that many of the street names come from London or the South East of the UK. For example, I live on Merton Drive and across from me is Battersea Park way. Just down the road is Richmond Park...

How many gears do you have as a presenter?

How many gears do you have as a presenter?

I’m struggling up the small hill on my way back from my morning bike ride – down to the park and back – only about 4 miles in all but it gets me going. It’s downhill all the way to the park and uphill all the way back.  I can choose certain roads and ride all the...
