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.
