 I always strive to do more. Let us know what we can do better.”

Working with the BBN team to build our own independent news channel has been one of my favourite career projects to date – pulling my experience and network together to create the most compelling content for our readers and supporters.

I am so proud of the progress we have made in broadening our readership base, engaging bright new writers and journalists, and interviewing industry professionals. Moreover, our Chatham Chats Forum and our Letter to the Editor column have gone a long way to opening up the subjects most relevant to our industry.

Working with BBN allows me to combine my two passions of communication and maritime. I’m no stranger to the maritime and logistics industry having worked with various organisations in shipping and now I also run my own Maritime PR and Communications company Buoy Communications.
