Less than a year after the fall of the Taliban, Alan was in Afghanistan helping kick-start journalism after years in an enforced wilderness. He worked with the national news agency to bring a new level of professionalism to an increasingly newsy part of the world and headed into previously unreported areas with the new breed of reporters to show them how it’s done.
Whether it’s a relaunch of a major national tabloid, the convergence of print, online and TV or a new look for a local newspaper website Alan won’t just tell you what to do he’ll be right in there doing it with you.
His hands-on approach works well in both the boardroom and the newsroom so if you need an experienced head to help lead you through a period of transition email for more details.
Considering a relaunch, a redesign or change of direction? Alan can help you mastermind significant change.
Arse-kicking and cheering up: Does your newsroom need a kick up the pants or reminding why we love journalism? Workshops, seminars and away-days tailored to your demands.
