I worked with Jim for many years at BBC Radio Northampton. I found him a really lovely person, both as a colleague and a friend. He went the extra mile for me and many of my colleagues. Professionally, what Jim doesn’t know about broadcasting isn’t worth knowing, the same can be said about his deep knowledge of music of all kinds. He deserves all the success in the world and I don’t think I’ve met a harder working journalist and broadcaster.
I’ve had the pleasure of attending a number of events hosted by Jim and am always hugely impressed with his professionalism and his ability to excite, enthuse, and manage a diverse crowd of people. Jim has a rare presence and can absolutely enthrall a room full of people – he’s certainly top of our list for event hosts, speakers, and all round fab people!
Jim’s natural wit,charm and ability to engage with an audience are the perfect combination for a great event. Having worked with Jim in his capacity as both a speaker and on another occasion as a compère of our annual event I can highly recommend his services. As a compère, Jim has an amazing gift to put people at ease getting the best from even the most nervous of guests and adding impact to the proceedings! As a speaker, his natural rapport and humour (along with infectious laugh) bring an element of magic that adds to the occasion and makes for a truly memorable event!
Jim is a gifted workshop and event presenter. Because he has many years experience as a radio presenter he knows a variety of creative teaching methods to ensure you learn what you need to. His engaging personality makes you feel completely comfortable, even when you are not in your comfort zone. Jim is always encouraging and positive and is a great supporter of social enterprise. If you want to improve your media skills quickly, hire Jim!
