I am a professional communicator who has worked in the broadcast media and Public Relations sectors for more than twenty years. I have worked for a diverse range of organisations from a wave energy company to an airline and the NHS. I have been the news editor of two commercial radio stations and a senior presenter and producer at the BBC so I “get” the media and how it works. A close relative had a positive experience of the GDA and so when I saw on the Guernsey volunteer website that they were looking for assistance with their comms I volunteered to help. I’ve so far written some press releases and the next, and important task, is to create a communications strategy. I’ve found that the GDA board are friendly and clearly care about their members.
