I was recently approached by Hope Radio 103.2FM, Laura Bennet and Duncan Robinson for an interview on workplace values. We had a great conversation and I was impressed by both Laura’s and Duncan’s infectious energy and humour. When I discovered they both have enjoyed fascinating career paths before joining Hope Radio, I had to have them on my podcast to talk about their journeys! Laura and Duncan have taken such different paths in their careers before joining forces on Hope Breakfast. They share the key qualities and transferable skills required to be a success in broadcast journalism and how to be an engaging radio host. Enjoy their top tips for success!
