Who is an Expert?
Most of us don't consider ourselves to be 'experts'. But actually to everyone not in our line of business, we are. And rightly so.
Having worked within a specific profession, business, industry or charity; we have accumulated knowledge and experience in at least one important field. Sometimes several.
That knowledge is of value to the general public and invaluable to those in the media when working on news stories and features concerning your specialist area(s).
Few journalists have in-depth knowledge of specific subjects and rely heavily on advice, information, explanation, comment and opinion from those who DO know what they're talking about.
And that's where you come in. In reality 'expert' is shorthand for someone with 'relevant expertise' able to give an opinion based on their knowledge and experience.
