ONE WAY TO PEACE IS THROUGH THE MEDIA.
My goal is to provide essential media consulting services to governments, organisations and media working in pre-, post- and current conflicts.
Each intervention is designed individually to meet the situation.
That could mean advising on the design and management of a strategic communication plan; training media professionals in how to prevent and manage conflict; mentoring a long-running soap opera for social change; or workshopping an online course in behaviour change communication.
Recent clients include;
Transnational Crisis Project
BBC Media Action
Foreign and Commonwealth Office
