With over 25 years broadcasting experience with the BBC, whether its podcasting, radio presenting, event chairing, creative facilitation, ideas generation, media training or inspirational public speaking - if you've got a project in mind get in touch.
Up until 2020 I presented and co-produced the highly acclaimed BBC radio and podcast science series, Brainwaves.
Rooted in ‘science by stealth’ – hooking the audience with relevance then introducing the science underpinning the story – its a series which constantly breaks the mould. From the science of the selfie to a search for silence, lessons from the dissection room to fracking, no subject is out of bounds.
The entire BBC Brainwaves series is available to listen to online.
“Pennie has such a wonderful way with people and immediately puts everyone at ease. Within minutes, Pennie can get a group of diverse strangers to open up and talk about intimate and emotive topics. Pennie finds common ground, creates a sense of safety and provides some sort of magical social lubricant to encourage people to share. Pennie’s ability to rapidly create a group dynamic enables her to expertly conduct group interviews as well as creating a cosy environment for an interviewee in front of an audience.”
