Our host, Bernard P Achampong, has over 25 years media experience. He worked as an engineer in Biotech and Aerospace companies. He joined the BBC in 2002 and was part of the team that launched BBC Radio 1Xtra.

In 2016, he joined Coventry University’s Entrepreneurship faculty where the established culture of academia challenged everything he knew about organisations.

“My job as a host is to get the people on the panel and the people who came to hear from them closer together; getting those questions asked and those answers shared.”

Bernard is a regular Inspirational YOU host, leading on our popular Relationship and Well-being seminars.  He is the Founder of Unedited Production company and a Radio Director

======================================

Relationships can reduce stress and have been linked to overall improved health. Researchers have even shown that people with healthy social relationships have a 50 percent greater likelihood of survival.

But relationships are challenging – sometimes exhausting at best. People with poor relationships are more likely to suffer from depression, and loneliness is powerful enough to weaken our immune system.
