From bite-size workshops to Master’s programmes, I deliver digital training that includes mobile video, AI, online writing/SEO, podcasting, social media storytelling, content marketing, gender and solutions journalism, and more. Training is practical and culture-sensitive, empowering learners with the confidence and skills they need.
Media projects with human impact
Working with international media, NGOs and corporate clients, I design and lead innovative projects such as the mobile-first Change Your Story programme in Africa and Gender Active, challenging perceptions through digital storytelling. In Azerbaijan, I launched and led the region’s first MA in Sport Journalism with international partners.
Consultancy that puts people first
I provide management and mentoring support for digital media initiatives that demand diplomacy, collaboration and innovation to deliver sustainable, measured results. Behind me are decades of operational leadership as a UK editor-in-chief and CEO, plus an extensive track record in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
The workshop was brilliant! Dan is a natural communicator who was able to get across technical detail in such a way that was easy for everyone to absorb. I came away buzzing, confident and motivated to experiment with what I learned.

I would not be where I am right now as a journalist with the BBC without the multimedia skills I acquired during Dan’s training. I went into it with zero digital skills and left with enough to train other journalists like myself. His impact is huge.

From every angle, Dan’s organisation and approach was top-notch. His training was packed full of amazingly simple but practical insights that will guarantee the success of our social media campaigns – it delivered exactly what it said on the tin.

Dan is an exceptional media trainer. Whenever he’s doing a course, I know I’ll learn something new from the master. His training is always well thought out and carefully prepared, interactive and delivered with the learner in mind. Quality!
Dan makes learning an art form. He effortlessly has the ability to meet a student where they are and walk them into new technical horizons. His training and character are simply superlative. Yes, With Dan I can!
