“Whether it’s dealing with government ministers, BBC presenters, high-profile celebrities, or recording the vulnerable and dispossessed, Angela has both an eye for the story, an empathy with the subject, and the tenacity to follow through to a great broadcast. The BBC’s role is to educate, inform and entertain… add the verb ‘inspire’ and that’s what Angela’s work does.”

Sukey Firth

“Séverine worked with us on a range of EUAfrica projects. This involved the making of four films in Africa and Europe, including at the European Commission. The results are far beyond what the European Commission and scientists could expect.”

“In Colombia you did impeccable work, discovering the best human interest stories and using a wonderful language to narrate them. Our coffee producers remember you with great affection and respect.”

Ricardo Piedrahita

“Angela’s understanding of NGOs and humanitarian issues, combined with her keen news sense, means collaborating with her always produces sensitive stories that also cut through in the mainstream media. Angela has also joined me in training spokespeople to give confident, compelling interviews. She’s a popular media trainer, striking a fine balance between building confidence and preparing people for the rigours of live TV.”
