This is the BBC

Well, I've always wanted to say that - after my brief brush with fame being paid to be on Playaway when I was 14.  Last week I was interviewed by BBC Radio Tees presenter, Mike Parr - on live radio!

I'd been told there was a report being published by Durham University about how men wearing red ​were seen as angry and aggressive and I was invited to be interviewed about this.  The night before, I'd been swotting up on colour psychology, about red being a colour used by leaders, and blue being a colour to wear if you wanted to appear collaborative (just think about how Barack Obama dresses to give speeches and to play with children in nursery school).

When I got into the studio, it all went of in a different direction.  I wasn't quite sure what the next question was going to be and it is fascinating how fast radio presenters have to be on their feet as they formulate questions at the same time as cueing up travel reports, songs, and watching the time.  It's all about being in your element and recognising strengths of your personality.

Anyway, have a listen to what I had to say about:

  • What radio presenters should wear
  • How important colour is
  • Does wearing red give you confidence
  • Does wearing black make you look slimmer (you should know the answer to this one)
  • What colours suit you
  • What do your clothes say about you
  • Are people too scruffy
  • Should you dress for promotion
  • Should men wear red
  • The effects of wearing black

I'd love to hear your comments on this post
