A SUFFOLK journalist who has worked in newspapers and television has set up her own training consultancy, Mindcraft Training.

Sarah Walker, 43, of Tostock, near Bury St Edmunds, has 20 years' experience, working as a reporter and presenter for Anglia News, the BBC and national newspapers.

As well as guiding people on how to deal with the press, she runs workshops to help people who face the media to practise their interviewing skills on and off camera.

She has devised and led training courses for representatives of the emergency services, local authorities and the business world for several years while working as a freelance journalist for the regional and national media.

She also runs courses on the art of good communication, including presentation skills for those who dread having to face an audience.

“In an age of 24-hour rolling news, anyone in business can find themselves in the media spotlight so it has never been more important to make sure you get your message across in the best possible way,” she said.
