What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?

I set up KO-Media in 2003 to provide publishing, digital content and editorial support for businesses and publications in the hospitality sector. Clients include the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII), Fuller’s and the Licensed Trade Charity – I also edit/publish three quarterly magazines. I assist with sector-specific conferences, including organising and chairing the Propel Multi-Operator Coffee Conference. I was awarded the BII’s highest honour of CBII in 2019 and joined the Board of the BGBW’s in 2020. During my career, I have also been the editor of three leading weeklies: The Publican Newspaper, RetailWeek and Off Licence News. I was at Sky (2000-2008) in various roles: head of comms, publisher of Sky’s business magazines and launch editor of The Pub Channel, the daily news TV programme.
