How she presents

Ann is a warm and entertaining speaker who tells her extraordinary story with passion and enthusiasm. Ann is now an expert in her field of business story-telling and unlocking business creativity and so is able to draw very relevant lessons for the world of business from her experience creating Changing Rooms.

In Detail

As a young producer, Ann developed the format of Changing Rooms from an unpromising brief for a 'DIY game show'. Ann was at the centre of the very special set of circumstances, events and talents that came together to create this juggernaut of a cultural event. After Changing Rooms, Homebase profits shot up, interior design courses were inundated and the show itself was watched by almost 50% of TV viewers in the UK when it was transmitted. Ann has also worked with businesses and organisations as a story coach, exploring how creativity, innovation and storytelling can be unlocked within an organisation.


Ann tells her compelling story of the 14 months which started with a 4-week TV development contract, and ended by launching one of the BBC's most successful formats of the decade. Ann uses the lessons learned over this time to show how to build a productive creative environment, how to feed innovation not kill it and how to ensure that innovation becomes 'business as usual' to put rocket fuel in future growth.
