Learn More About Yvonne

Yvonne gave me my first break in television. She was my first teacher, my first producer and a key person in my script editing training. She has a passion for long running series, thinks outside the box and is prepared to take risks.

ELAINE PYKE Outgoing Channel Director, Sky Atlantic

Being able to step out of our day to day commercially focussed roles and immerse ourselves in the world of script writing and analysis allowed us to approach our shows from a new angle, with enhanced knowledge and insight as to the elements that make up a great script and how things will work on screen. We are all looking at shows/scripts through a different lens now thanks to the training.
