Another day at the BBC on Monday, for the second Expert Women training day.  I had to stuggle in on crutches as I’ve got a bad knee strain, but it was well worth it.  The training itself has been getting quite a lot of media coverage, and the BBC seem to be putting a lot of resources behind it.  Since my last training day, several of the women I met there have had media appearances, so something is clearly working……

Here’s the Guardian write up of the day.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2013/mar/18/bbc-expert-women-days-salford-glasgow-cardiff

It’s a shame that what comes out of this piece is advice about voice and hair…. in fact the best parts of the training were to do with the business of broadcasting:  listening to Janice Hadlow, Controller of Radio 2; and exploring how to pitch ideas, then getting feedback on specific proposals we’d prepared in advance.  Still, all publicity is good publicity, as they say.  It is odd being in the middle of something which is attracting attention like this.  I was hoping the BBC training would lead to me being able to create attention for the topics of alcohol and women,  but it seems there is also an appetite to know what it means to be a BBC Expert Woman.  Interesting to see how both develop further…..
