30+ countries, one aim: To empower communicators and communities. It’s my passion, backed by 40 years of journalism and management.
I would not be where I am right now as a journalist with the BBC without the multimedia skills I acquired during Dan's intensive new media training. I went into it with zero digital skills and left with enough to train other journalists like myself. I see how far-reaching his impact has been in Nigeria where he has trained numerous journalists.

The training was extremely informative and a delight to take part in. Dan’s knowledge, enthusiasm and presentational skills were all excellent, but above all his unflappability in dealing with a multitude of platforms, apps and websites for a diverse range of users was impressive, to say the least. A great learning experience all round!

Dan delivered a well-designed, practical day’s training (with excellent handouts) via Zoom, at a good pace with clarity and patience. He effortlessly dealt with equipment queries remotely and by lunchtime I had my first test podcast! Dan is an excellent communicator and a skilled trainer.
