About me

Name: Ged Clapson
Born: 20 March 1955, Bristol

Currently resident in Mitcham, Surrey

 

I have now (2018) taken early retirement, after being diagnosed with cancer (chemotherapy is ongoing). But my working life has always been in communications: the media and associated areas. For 15 years, I worked as a radio producer and presenter with the BBC, and, deep down, I supppose I still consider myself to be a broadcaster. Once it gets into your blood it stays with you. But over the past 25 years or so, I've branched out - training others in communications and media skills, while continuing in radio production and presentation whenever possible.

 

Outside of work, I enjoy the arts. I love the theatre - especially musicals; recent productions have included Goodnight, Mr Tom - the musical, The Wizard of Oz and The Vicar of Dibley. I'm an amateur singer (karaoke whenever the opportunity arises) and I also enjoy painting and I get great pleasure from my garden and its wildlife.

 

Since 1990, when I moved to London, I have worked principally with charities, especially those with Christian roots. Most recently, I was Communications Officer for the British Jesuits who work in schools, parishes and missions throughout the world.

From Tosca - Giacomo Puccini:

 


Diedi gioielli

della Madonna al manto,
e diedi il canto agli astri,

al ciel,
che ne ridean più belli.

 

English Translation:

 

I lived for art, I lived for love ...
I gave jewels

for the Madonna's mantle,
And songs for the stars,

in heaven,
That shone forth with greater radiance.
