So Who is @Money_sucks
Moneysucks? was created by Fergus Muirhead to help demystify money! Money is an important tool for all of us, and an emotional one, but too often we let it control how we live our lives rather than the other way round.
So Moneysucks? will be full of accessible, easy to read, information and advice on all aspects of money and consumer rights. Fergus is making it his mission to help you understand what you need to be doing to make your money work for you, and to make sure that you understand where you stand as a consumer if you feel you’re getting poor service or your complaints are not being taken seriously.
Moneysucks? is the culmination of over twenty years of involvment with money in all its guises and over that time Fergus has helped a wide range of individuals to manage their money efficiently.
Fergus is an experienced writer and broadcaster. He has written on all aspects of money and consumer issues for a number of newspapers and magazines as diverse as Scotland on Sunday, The Herald, The Sunday Herald, the Sun, The News of the World and the Journal of the Probate Section of the Law Society. He wrote a regular column in Moneywise Magazine and for five years he was Consumer Champion at best selling magazine Women’s Own.
He is the author of three money advice booklets for One Parent Families as well as a number of Chapters in the Probate Section Journal Yearbook. He has also written on-line content for RBS ‘Money Sense’ website as well as their ‘Teacher’s guide to Finance’ Booklets.
As well as his writing credits Fergus has appeared regularly on a number of radio and TV programmes. These include GMTV, BBC Breakfast, Homes Live and Location, Location, Location for TV and Macaulay & Co, The Phil Williams Show and many BBC News programmes on radio.
He can currently be seen and heard on his regular money and consumer slot on BBC Scotland’s flagship TV news programme Reporting Scotland and on the lunchtime radio show Scotland Live.
Away from his desk Fergus has travelled the world playing bagpipes and he has acted as Compere at every Piping Live Festival in Glasgow as well as at the prestigious William Kennedy Festival in Armagh. He is a respected performer at Burns Suppers – his Tam o’ Shanter is well worth seeing we are told.
