“Mick ran two workshops for two very different groups of people – the first with our core staff team and the second with a group of freelance artists.

“Both sessions were fun, focused and endlessly useful – moving from an overview of press and marketing to practical, hands-on scenarios.

“Throughout all of this, Mick was incredibly personable and responsive…

“I simply couldn’t recommend Mick or his work any higher.”

About Mick

I work across the UK, Ireland & English-speaking countries

It’s all about connections. For example, recent media appearances by my clients include Granada Reports, BBC North West Tonight, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, LBC and many independent and BBC local radio stations, along with local press in Wales, Scotland and England and numerous magazines.

Although I am based on Merseyside I am happy to travel to other parts of the UK and Europe, bringing with me the skills and experience gathered from 30 years working at the BBC.


During my time at the helm of BBC Radio Merseyside we achieved the highest audience figures for 10 years and consistently the highest listenership of any BBC local station outside of London.

This was achieved due to a highly creative workforce 100% focused on our audience and strong, inspirational leadership which adapted to changing market conditions, knowing how and when to change focus and always with a weather eye on the long-term strategy.

Sectors I enjoy working with include:

  • PR industry
  • SMEs
  • Chambers of Commerce
  • Business networks
  • Radio and tv sector
  • Education sector
  • Health sector
