Dear blog reader,
The first year of newsleader media consultancy is almost over. I cannot believe it has gone so fast.
A huge, sincere thank you to all the clients who have supported me this year. It has been hugely appreciated and very enjoyable working with you and your teams.
I also want to say a big thanks to my wife, Jill. As well as being a busy health consultant / trainer and a mum, she is also our company secretary and deals with all the numbers, Excel spreadsheets and associated things that fill me with dread! I have really appreciated that too x.
2010 starts as I hope it continues – busy.
In January, as well as a training job for the BBC, I am taking part in journalism.co.uk’s one day event in London news:rewired. It is aimed at sharing multimedia, social media and online skills. Read a Q&A with me ahead of the conference here.
In February, I will be fronting a masterclass in using social media within news for the European Broadcasting Union. I hope there will be some guest speakers and lots of examples of best practice from around the world. Please contact the EBU if you would like to attend this session in Geneva as it is open to all.
I will also be speaking at the EBU’s Multimedia Meets Radio conference in the Netherlands in March.
So, if we have not yet met, perhaps this will change in 2010 and a final thank you to you, for reading this blog. Please stay tuned, as they say, for more after the holidays.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
