Getting myself seen and heard.

When managing PR for clients, one is always behind the scenes, but occasionally that changes and below is a selection of some of the media coverage I have generated from being an entrepreneur. Here is a small selection of media coverage, as the topics are now all history. 

The point is that I 

a) know how to get an entrepreneur into all kinds of media 

b) how to help an entrepreneur to shape their message in front of the camera or microphone. 

These are some of the media which have included my news and my views on business.

The moment we share our story, there is an opportunity to engage the reporter with our vision. It's a big responsibility.

Launching The UnNoticed Entrepreneur book with media relations in the south west of England.

Driving his first Morgan Roadster on the streets of Beijing four years ago, British expat Jim James recognized a new business opportunity in the classic car market in China. Since then, he has been a pioneer in the field, building on his 20-year's experience of living in China. Let's take a listen to what he says about this.

Chinese TV stations needed expatriates to go on live shows to talk about various aspects of British society, economics and in this case the election. This was in English of course.
