The focus on #TheExpertPodcast today is a bit of a jill-of-all-trades in the world of media. Currently a radio broadcaster, television presenter, media trainer and MC. A very public figure but a person who hasn’t always been comfortable in the public eye. Her bravery and desire to confront her fears to advance is a major driver and a lesson for all experts looking to make an impact in media.
Carmen Braidwood has been a host-a-murder MC, the Constable Care Bear, a newsreader, breakfast presenter on a popular FM station and now the co-host of a weekend brunch program on 6PR. Peppered in amongst her impressive media experience, Carmen is also a travel show presenter, an MC, and a media trainer and mentor. Many of us could learn from her ‘confidence on camera’ program.
While Carmen might have been a little hesitant venturing down the media training path, we can’t help but feel she is well- equipped to do this. Too often media trainers are veterans of a media where Carmen is an active member of it. In the podcast she gives us some quality tips – one in particular that resonates the most is “that it is never about you, it’s ALL about audience”. Something that is sometimes forgotten by both media and experts.
Carmen talks about the people along her journey who have been a support, an influence and those that have her back. You won’t walk away from this podcast without knowing a great deal more about what drives and inspires Carmen Braidwood.
