"Joe Tidy has been a trusted sports presenter with Dream Team Television for eight years, covering large scale sports events for Channel 4, Sky and other major TV networks around the world. Working in an unpredictable sport environment, he is equally strong presenting with a script or in a pressured situation where he needs to quickly come up with his own words. A dedicated team-player, Joe is used to early starts and pushing through to late in the evening if necessary. He comes well-prepared and researched to all events and is a sympathetic, perceptive interviewer with a warm and easy-going on-screen style."
Stephen Isles - Editor, Dream Team Television
"Many thanks to Joe for providing such an insightful and brilliantly delivered presentation to the ISBA members this morning. He was great! I know he’s a journalist and it comes with the territory but he had clearly done so much prep work and research and considered the audience so well."
