Having spent twenty years working in BBC newsrooms as a senior broadcast journalist, Hannah is passionate about making the news accessible to everyone. She has worked on some of the biggest national news programmes on radio, TV and online, with the largest part of her career at BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat as an editor, reporter, presenter and newsreader. Her skills lie in cutting through the complex issues to get to the most engaging content for all parts of the audience.
In her own words: “I believe everyone has something interesting to say but sometimes you just need a bit of help with how to say it. That’s where we come in as media trainers and it’s so wonderful to watch people grow in confidence in our sessions to become genuinely engaging story tellers in front of the camera and microphone.”
What others say: “Hannah has always had the ability to get the best out of interviewees, putting them quickly at ease and giving them the confidence to tell their stories in an authentic way that draws in the audience. She’s an excellent creative journalist who always strives to put real people at the heart of everything she does.”
