My passion is connecting people to quality content that matters to them
In my 28-year career as an award-winning business journalist, I have been lucky enough to meet and interview some of the world’s leading business people, as well as working in both large and small media organisations during hugely transformative times. My experience has clearly testified to the pivotal role good people practice and continual learning plays in successful and sustainable organisations.
Between 2010-2016 I worked at Mark Allen Group, one of the largest independent B2B media companies in the UK. For the past three years I was publishing director, where I was responsible for delivering the business plan for 11 B2B and consumer titles. I joined Mark Allen Group as editor of HR magazine and later became publisher. I developed the HR Most Influential list and ran the HR Excellence Awards as well as launching the HR in the Boardroom group for HR directors, which I co-founded with Wayne Clarke of The Global Growth Institute and Steve Tappin of Xinfu and BBC CEO Guru fame.
I was also a regular judge for the National Online Recruitment Awards (NORAs) and a speaker/chair at industry events.
Prior to this I was deputy, then acting, editor for The Grocer; divisional group editor for Centaur Business Intelligence; launch editor of In-Store and deputy editor at both Retail Week and Leisure Week.
