Paul Myers

Paul has a career in computing and internet research and development that dates back to 1978

He joined the BBC in 1995 as an information researcher.   As the internet grew in significance, Paul was able to blend his technical knowledge with the realities of his work in journalism. As a result, he was able to devise unique, innovative strategies that have led countless researchers to evidence they would never have otherwise found. His ideas continue to shape the way professionals conduct online research and investigation.

Paul currently heads up BBC Academy's Investigation Support project. This sees him work within programme teams, solving issues related to investigation, whilst sharing vital new skills with those he works with.

He has worked with leading BBC programmes like Panorama, Watchdog, Inside Out, BBC News, BBC Online, local & national radio and the BBC World Service.

Aside from his consultancy work, Paul regularly delivers training in all the essential areas of digital and investigative work, from social media investigation to digital photography.

He has also trained personnel from groups as diverse as The United Nations, The Guardian Newspaper, KPMG, The Financial Times, Channel 4, CNN and the World Bank.
