Debbie Sheringham, Social Media Manager

Debbie Sheringham has worked for the BBC for over 15 years across TV, Radio and Online. As the Social Media Lead Producer for BBC Radio 4 and 4 Extra, she brought wit, warmth (and record-breaking clicks) to the online presence of two of the UK’s highest profile speech radio stations. She trains international journalists and organisations (including BBC World Service and Médecins Sans Frontières) to maximise their digital output and minimise the risk of slip-ups with a simple, no nonsense approach to social media. Debbie juggles working for the BBC with running her own micro-business (Straight Talking Ltd) and repeatedly explaining that she's not a Geordie, but a Makem.
