My help has been sought by some of the world’s best known broadcasters: on what action to take to avoid compliance problems and on what to do if an issue does arise with Ofcom and you want to mitigate the possible risk or damage. You will receive a personal and confidential service with compliance training tailored to your organisation’s specific needs.

I have around 40 years of experience in UK broadcasting and in TV, radio and on-demand regulation. I am also a fully qualified UK solicitor, who has worked at a high level for some of the world’s top law firms and also for the UK’s television and radio regulators. Before I started my broadcasting compliance consultancy in April 2017, I worked as a senior manager in Ofcom’s standards department for ten years. I oversaw many of the most high profile and controversial Ofcom compliance investigations of recent years.

With many Ofcom TV broadcasters and on-demand providers based outside the UK or with operations outside the capital, I have the added benefit of being based here in London. I also travel across the UK and overseas to give advice or run bespoke compliance courses, in small groups or one-on-one.
