“As an artist being interviewed for BBC radio, I found the prospect quite daunting. However, following an enjoyable training session facilitated by Pamela, I was well prepared and the interview flowed really well. I could not have done this without the prep work with Pam which included handy tips, key messages and a couple of mock interviews which prepared me really well.”
Cathy Stocker, Tremallt Studios
