Thompson – Cruise Ship Speaker and Comedienne

Although my job was to entertain according to the schedule, I represented the company at all times, not switching off. I spent the entire time I was onboard learning about the passengers and making sure they were enjoying their experience. I learnt a lot about people on board the ship, it was an opportunity for me to learn about new cultures.

Radio Broadcasting

July 1997 – present:

BBC Radio Producer/Presenter for BBC Tees and BBC Newcastle


This role requires excellent communication skills between the radio team and most importantly the audience. I am often both the producer and presenter of lengthy radio shows and so this job demands creativity and contacts. Forward planning is key, setting up guests and interviewing the public. I deal with celebrities on a weekly basis and do so professionally and discreetly. I have an excellent knowledge of the North east region and have never missed a deadline. I’m an ambassador for the BBC, often representing them at events and presenting to clients.
