New start: New business

I am a very experienced media professional with 30 years in the newspaper and public relations business in Bermuda and the UK, at senior management levels.

Married to a Bermudian, I am now setting up my own public relations, social media, media consultancy and writing business.

Briefly my work experience includes:

  • Deputy Editor at The Royal Gazette since 2010 – with six months as Acting Editor (from January 1, 2013)
  • News Editor at The Royal Gazette from 2006 to 2010
  • News Editor of the Hull Daily Mail, Hull, UK.

Whilst at The Royal Gazette I introduced the concept of breaking news and video reporting and as Deputy Editor I had control over the paper’s very successful social media sites. I was also very heavily involved in training and successfully established a journalism course at Bermuda College.

My position at the Hull Daily Mail meant I was in charge of a team of approximately 25 people, producing up to four or five editions of the paper a day, six days a week.

While I was there, the paper won numerous regional and national awards.

My public relations experience stems from my role as an equity-holding director of Sturgess Van Damme PR, based in Bristol, UK, where clients included a regional airline, a regional law firm, a nationwide chain of realtors and a regional firm of property consultants.

I once even carried out public relations duties for the Prime Minister of Romania and I was successful in getting these clients local, regional and national TV and print coverage in the UK, in both industry and mainstream media.

My experience means that I can carry out tasks ranging from news and feature writing, to press releases, to writing and implementing strategic media, social media and public relations plans that dovetail with the direction of the company’s vision.
