I run a media consultancy working as a freelance journalist, offering a combination of writing skills and industry knowledge to companies both in the travel sector and outside.
I provide daily online breaking news and other editorial content as a freelance for TWgroup which includes leading weekly trade news magazine Travel Weekly.
Besides media training, report writing and project work for travel companies, I contribute to consumer titles, including the Daily Telegraph’s regular cruise supplements and the Mail on Sunday. I am cruise editor of Family Traveller Magazine and former editor of trade title Cruise Trade News as well as providing blogs to websites run by travel agencies in the cruise sector. I also supply editorial for advertising supplements.
Using my experience as former editor of travel industry title Travel Trade Gazette and online news service www.TravelMole.com, I assist companies in preparing strategies, PR plans, media training, newsletters, internal communications etc.
My ability to understand the workings of journalists and PRs puts me in a unique position to offer advice on handling press relations to ensure travel companies achieve the best possible exposure. Media training clients in the travel industry include British Airways, P&O Cruises, HS2, Cunard, Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Expedia, Travelport GDS, Butlins’ parent company Bourne Leisure, and Sunvil Holidays. Non-travel clients include the UK Atomic Weapons Agency and Dubai-based Limitless, a major international development company.
I offer extensive industry knowledge and top-level contacts both in the media and travel trade.
I have been a journalist for 30 years with experience in both weekly and daily newspapers and online news. I also have experience in editing customer and staff magazines as well as providing ad-hoc PR services.
