From an inauspicious start as an actor (nice smile zero talent) I wisely moved into narration, voice-overs, journalism and ultimately broadcasting. I spent 20+ years with the BBC World Service producing, presenting and reporting. In recent years I’ve been compere and/or VOG at some notable events and ceremonies: Last November’s first-ever ‘Heropreneurs Awards’ and the ‘APM’ Awards’ (both VOG) and previously compere/VOG at the APM Conference in successive years. I was on-stage compere at the Shepherd’s Bush Green Festival. I’m equally happy to be ‘in view’ or a ‘disembodied voice’.
