Julia Barry

Julia was Deputy Editor of BBC Breakfast for six years, where her job involved overseeing hundreds of hours of live television, and developing the on-screen skills of scores of correspondents and contributors.      Julia knows what makes an excellent broadcaster,  and the pitfalls that can make the most knowledgeable, well informed guest appear dull and uninspiring.  “We want nurture media skills around the UK, and encourage a more diverse range of experts in broadcasting” says Julia “In particular we want to see more expert women take the plunge and put themselves forward.  For that they need to feel confident and in control - and that’s where we come in!”
