My media background started straight out of school at the SMH and I have been hooked on print ever since. From newspapers I moved into magazine advertising sales and have found my perfect niche with Get Up & Go. The travel industry is a real buzz and I love working with its people. Here at Get Up & Go we have online e-newsletter and website options to complement our printed version. This helps provide lots of business – consumer reach. The demographic of 50 + travellers keeps growing year by year and shows no sign of slowing,  so join us and reach this valuable market.

I’m here, there and everywhere. I have been the editor of Get Up & Go magazine for 10 years and have been instrumental in evolving it to fit the ‘fab 50 years plus’ market. I have been a journalist for more years than I will admit too and love the magazine industry. I stay on top of the social media side and have embraced blogging too as an added bonus to our fab magazine. When I am not writing and getting the magazine, newsletter, blog and facebook happening, I’m in the air, on the rails, at sea, on the road, discovering all the countries of the world or sitting comfortably having a posh afternoon tea – all in the name of research for Get Up & Go. I love coming to work with great colleagues and a supportive company attitude – can’t get much better than that. Bon voyage!

Helen says it’s great owning a business and working for yourself, but what is most satisfying to her is knowing that when she comes into the office each day she will be met with the same highly professional, happy and content people that she’s been seeing for a number of years. Staff devotion, stability and their unrivalled expertise means everything to her. “I’ve surrounded myself with good people, a loyal readership and a ‘Rolls Royce’ class of supporters and clients that make up our business events industry. We love what we do and do what we love.”

A country boy from the  NSW North Coast, he moved to the big smoke in 2015.

Best event memory: Blizzcon 2015 Starcraft finals at Hotel CBD Sydney. It was pretty much a bunch of gamers all screaming at a TV cheering on the world champions of StarCraft 2 (which is a video game). It was awesome!
