Public Speaking with Alfie Joey

Public speaking is the subject matter for this week’s podcast. Kevin was salivating about Alfie Joey. After all, he’s quite the celebrity in the North East. For around 10 years Alfie has been the voice of breakfast on BBC Newcastle. With passionate listeners, many do not know what he looks like, but they know his voice alright.

Alfie is soon to step away from his job at the BBC and start offering public speaking coaching plus a number of other related offers. He’s multi-talented.

He’s Interviewed Keir Starmer

Block of wood or really nice. You decide.
