Outstanding Testimonials

1817789_Sarah-Richardson“Peter Gillman is an absolute inspiration for journalists, particularly those starting out in their careers. The skills I learned in training sessions with him as a recent graduate – investigative reporting, interviewing techniques and feature writing – remain with me today, both for the fantastic grounding they gave in journalistic techniques, and for the quiet passion with which they were passed on.  As an editor, I have seen dozens of young reporters and newly-appointed section editors return from his sessions with their skills dramatically sharpened and a heightened sense of what it is possible to achieve as journalists; many have gone on to build highly successful careers in the national press or B2B publications.  In world where “real” journalism is becoming harder to find, and those teaching it even more so, training sessions of this quality are a rare and valuable discovery.”
