The judging panel of the BPG awards are the journalists who cover TV and Radio. The BPG executive committee said they recognised the comedy writer, producer and presenter as having, “created many of Britain’s most innovative and enduring comedy series on radio and television”
John is an accomplished anecdotal after dinner speaker with a wealth of entertaining stories from his background in the media. Feedback on his presentations includes:
“John did a fantastic job at ending our dinner on a high. His humorous stories of working in TV and radio had the whole room laughing out loud. He was able to connect with everyone in the room, I was unable to spot one person who did not have a smile on their face whilst he was speaking. The evidence of this can be seen in the photos taken on the night.” The QCA
