In Bangkok, I taught journalism at Thailand’s top university, Chulalongkorn. From scratch, I devised the entire syllabus for a course called ‘TV News and Documentary’. Most of my students hoped to pursue a career in journalism, so I created a practical course that enabled them to survive in the modern day newsroom.
– finding & pitching a story;
– writing scripts;
– presenting & voice coaching;
– conducting interviews.
– news ethics;
– camera work & editing.
I also arranged field trips to newsrooms and press conferences, and organised a series of guest lectures with celebrated journalists.
The United Nations (UN) asked me to speak at a conference called ‘WHY COMMUNICATION MATTERS.’
I gave delegates some journalistic insight into how to sell a story, how to write an attention-grabbing press release and how to use social media to promote the UN’s work.
