I have worked in live television for over 4 years, racking up hundreds of live hours of broadcasting for the Gems TV network, which was formerly known as Snatch It & Factory Outlet upon its launch in 2002. My natural style and quick wit made me an ideal presenter for a channel that wanted to break with the stuffy formalities of other shopping channels and I was consistently one of the channels best sellers in terms of turnover and profit.
Again, rather than bore you with too much detail, here's my former manager at the station with his view on what I brought to TV presenting
"Ian is a total natural in front of the cameras and has always had such an engaging way with our customers over the years. Infact I get more letters from customers asking 'When Ian is coming back to work for you?' than for ANY other presenter I've hired. He is the business!"
