As Liam Bird’s direct line manager at CNN, it’s my pleasure to write this testimonial for him.

I have known Liam for many years and have followed his career with great interest. Throughout his time working on radio documentaries, I was always impressed by his ability to uncover thought-provoking, edgy stories. His unquenchable curiosity leads him to unique characters and personal stories - that he presents in a respectful, journalistically responsible way. These journalistic instincts are fueled by a fascination with the world we live in and a disciplined approach to his education/research.

It is this skill set that made me offer Liam the opportunity to join my team as a freelancer at CNN. During this time, Liam has been responsible for researching stories for new digital series pitches, ranging on topics from childbirth in Japan to the rebuilding of the ancient Silk Road.

If you are looking for someone to add fresh ideas, an alternative perspective and bags of energy to your team – I highly recommend that you talk to Liam. He’s a great professional who has a reputation for being extremely driven, reliable and trustworthy.

Regards, Ryan Smith Editor, CNN Global Projects
