Dickinson, Sarah

Sarah has written two reference books, How to Take on the Media and Effective Presentation and two novels, A Slice of Lime, a comedy set in the Caribbean, and Crocodile Clips, a satire based on the early days of an all-speech commercial radio station. She has a collection of short stories, Melody and two travel books, Zebras on the Runway and Plenty Mango – Postcards From the Caribbean which is illustrated by her husband, the architect and painter, John Renton.

She founded Electric Airwaves, www.electricairwaves.com, London’s leading media, presentation training and media consulting company. She has trained senior executives from many of Britain’s top FTSE 100 companies and has pioneered international media and issue management training.

She also co-founded one of the first independent radio production companies, Ladbroke Radio, which produced programmes both for the BBC and commercial radio.

Before setting up Electric Airwaves and Ladbroke Radio, Sarah was well-known as a radio and television presenter, on programmes as diverse as “GOING PLACES” with Barry Norman and “THE NIGHT IS YOUNG” with Tony Palmer on LBC.

Sarah and John have two grown up sons and four grandchildren and divide their time between the Caribbean island of Montserrat and London.

Sarah will be launching her newly published Plenty Mango – Postcards from the Caribbean at the 2017 Alliouagana Festival of the Word.
