A very Happy New Year to you!
I’m sending you this email because we’ve been in touch in the past, met at an event, have done business together or our paths cross regularly online. I’ll be sending this newsletter weekly to my key contacts to keep you up to date on the events of the week, alongside tips and trends to maximise media engagement and any press or speaker requests we’ve got that may be of interest. I hope you like it and find it useful. If you don’t want me writing to you every week or so, please feel free to unsubscribe at the end of the email.
In this week’s issue: JP Morgan’s essential to-do list of 2017, predicted IPOs for the coming year, an overview of what’s happening at Davos and some press and speaking opps to kick off the year. Enjoy!

- For the BBC: anything fitness or health related that’s going to change 2017 for the better
- For the Telegraph: advice on how to put limits on your kid’s mobile phone usage
- CES: who, what, when, where.
- Mobile World Congress - if you’re going now is the time to start telling the press what you’ll be doing there we’ve already started getting requests.
- International Business Times are on the hunt for this year’s new startups in consumer tech (eg AI, Virtual Reality, Wearable tech, robotics, forward thinking apps)
- The Guardian are looking for 100 gifts to put in goody bags for attendees at their small business events kicking off in Feb. 50 business owners will attend each event (2 in total) so if you want to market specifically to small biz owners/MDs in the UK let me know. They need 100 gifts (could be discount vouchers, stationary, accessories etc).
- Female business leader sought to speak at Information Age’s careers fair for women in London on 25th Jan. Big event, great opportunity for company branding among bright female grads. 
- The Europas are in full organisational swing and on the hunt for truly great game changers to speak at this year’s event in London on 13th June. 
Get in touch if any of the above is you.
