Mike Sweeney - BBC Broadcaster and Salford Jet

By Liz Taylor

How do you go from Miner to Rock Star to Broadcaster?  Mike Sweeney is one of those guys who seems to have done it all. He’s had a successful career as frontman of the Salford Jets, before going on to thrive as a broadcaster at radio stations including Capital Radio and BBC Radio Manchester. In this interview Liz Taylor pries open Mike’s rock ‘n’ roll black book and discovers the best and worst of the many interviews he’s done with huge names in the music industry. Mike also reflects on his career as a broadcaster and how it feels to be recognised by his peers. Liz Taylor is a successful award-winning event manager (www.tlc-ltd.co.uk) and businesswoman, a media commentator, motivational speaker and consultant for hospitality brands (www.liz-taylor-consulting.co.uk). She plans events for a range of blue-chip corporate clients right across the UK and Europe with her company The Taylor Lynn Corporation, in addition to a large private and celebrity clientele. This includes the likes of Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford. Take That’s Gary Barlow and Howard Donald, football stars, actors, Prime Ministers, global business leaders….a royal guest or two.  Most recently, Liz has been sharing the benefit of her knowledge on a number of topics for the hospitality industry, including how to react to the current COVID-19 situation in terms of business planning, how the meeting and events landscape will look in 2021, and of course, what it is like to be a female pioneer in her industry. Never giving up. Overcoming life and business challenges.   Liz Taylor Instagram - @liztaylorconsultancy Twitter - @ConsultancyLiz Facebook - facebook.com/LizTaylorConsultancy LinkedIn - linkedin.com/in/liztaylor-tlc Website - liz-taylor-consulting.co.uk Mike Sweeney Twitter - @MikeSweeney_UK  Facebook - facebook.com/MikeSweeneyOfficial/ Website - bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0195t4s
