I am now, after years working for a variety of different publications with interludes in marketing and other things like conference and event organisation, plus a stint doing freelance journalism full time, I have now taken on a new role.
I have filled the role of Secretary General to Malta’s Institute of Financial Service Practitioners for five weeks now – well, closer to six at the time of writing. A fundamental change? Maybe, but I don’t think so.
At the end of the day, a lot of what I do involves researching facts et cetera, analysing that data and then communicating it to people who need or can use it.
Plus, I can and will continue to follow the sectors I am interested in. Telecoms continues to be one of the most exciting, long term stories out there, whether it is the micro detail of which firm is doing what or the fascinating macro picture of lthe long term development of the technology – which of course gets its most enduring interest from the implications it raises for the way people can actually communicate.
Clear, well-written and properly researched copy is very valuable to any organisation. At any rate, I believe it is. Let’s face it, whatever the business, a company needs to communicate with its clients and the public. And it needs to do so effectively. That’s where I come in.
I am writing a range of material for very different companies: hotels, telecoms and software companies, property developers, car component manufacturers, glassware producers… the list goes on. And if you think I can help you, feel free to get in touch!
The real fun is in following news stories and reporting on develpments, mainly (for me) in ICTs, finance and maritine businesses. I’ve had work published in a number of Malta’s leading newspapers and magazines, and even in a few beyond.
