I’m Doing A Podcast Workshop For The Queen’s Young Leaders!

Last year talking to local schools at Adobe

I’m super excited to announce that I’m going to leading an all-day podcast workshop alongside my brilliant friend and producer Shola Aleje in collaboration with the Media Trust for the Queen’s Young Leaders, on January 23rd 2018.

The Queen’s Young Leaders is a brilliant initiative that discovers, celebrates and supports exceptional young people from across the Commonwealth. In 2014 a search was launched to find exceptional young people to receive the first ever Queen’s Young Leaders Awards. Hundreds of applications flooded in from incredible young people all dedicated to making lasting change in their community and beyond.

The Queen’s Young Leaders Grants programme supports projects in Bangladesh, Jamaica, Solomon Islands, Sierra Leone, the UK and Zambia. Each project places young people at the heart of their communities, working with them to help solve the issues that affect their lives. The Media Trust is a part of the UK portfolio of UK grantees.

Shola and I will kick off the day by giving an introduction to podcasting and explaining how it is creating amazing opportunities for people to have their voices heard. The day will be broken into four sections to give participants an insight to what it takes to take an idea and into a podcast. Working in groups, the participants will focus on: generating the idea behind a podcast, how to record a podcast and run it through Adobe Audition, editing a podcast and then how to successfully market it. By the end of the day groups will have their first pilot podcast!

Thanks to Media Trust for this opportunity! Media Trust is a communications charity that believes in the power of media to change lives. They inspire the media and communications industry to share their time, knowledge and creativity to benefit charities, communities and young people. Media Trust uses the power of the media to inspire, to support, to train and mentor young people. They make sure that young people are armed with the essential tools they need to find work and to become self-sufficient. One way of doing this is through their Transforming Hidden Talent programme.
