Clive Bull

“Even in the worst situations, you need that little smile.”

Clive Bull has spent decades on the air with some of the world’s wittiest people. His multi-award-winning career in radio has classified him as a legend of the airways. Clive has played with the best of them including comedy legend, Peter Cook. Bull knows that whether you are covering serious news or dealing with comedic callers, levity is the way to go.
Bull is all about balance. Humour is a valuable tool, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, you won’t get anywhere. Throughout his years in radio, Bull knows that the best bosses and business people bring balance.

“(The best business people) combine a real attention to detail specifics, a business sense, but also the kind of relaxed, easygoing attitude at the same time. I think that’s the kind of perfect combination, the wry smile, a little bit of a joke, but also, you’ve got to know what you’re doing.”

Bull also stresses the importance of listening. When you want to create a light atmosphere during a broadcast or while doing business, being a good listener is key. Bull believes that the best communication stems from great listening and a bit of laughter.
So why not follow Clive – take the bull by the horns – and see how you can lighten your life and enliven it with a bit more levity?
