I’ve been reporting for BBC news for three decades: across the UK, the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Australia.
I’m now a presenter for BBC World News television – though my commentaries here and any mistakes are entirely my own – and a leadership and life Coach.
My writing ranges across politics, diplomacy, psychology, education & literature. I began this blog as a 2011 Nieman Journalism Fellow at Harvard. I’m now a Masters student in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology at the University of East London. You can talk to me on Twitter at @PhilippaBBC
