Dan Thurlow - Event Director at Glee, Emap Connect
Graduated from Staffordshire University, MA from University of Wales - 1994
I joined Emap 11 years ago from ITE Group. Starting as a Sales Executive on the Retail Solutions Exhibition, I spent four years on the show helping to launch the awards and associated events whilst moving up to be Event Manager. I then switched to spend two years as the Commercial Manager on Retail Week. During this time we re-launched the magazine and website, and introduced numerous brand extensions. My next move was to Sales Director for the Autumn Fair (two years) and then promoted to Event Director on Glee (current role). Throughout my time I have been encouraged to be creative, contribute ideas and given the opportunity to execute them. I have spent time on a range of media, experienced launches and as a manager, had the responsibility for building teams and bringing new people into the business. The roles have all been challenging in different ways but through this you learn to have confidence in your abilities and decision making. Emap is dynamic, it is full of opportunity and attracts some of the best people I have worked with. 11 years have flown by and there have been some truly memorable and inspirational experiences along the way.
Antony Oliver, Editor, New Civil Engineer and Editorial Director Emap Inform
Graduated from University of Southampton in 1988
I have edited New Civil Engineer, the best read weekly magazine in construction and one of Emap’s top business to business brands for ten years.
I started my career in journalism at NCE as a Junior Reporter in 1994 and have worked on all sections of the magazine since, covering some of the biggest and most interesting stories in construction in that time. I was named Business Magazine Editor of the Year 2008 by the Periodical Publishers Association.
Before joining NCE, I spent six years working as a civil engineer with OwenWilliams and Balfour Beatty and qualified as a professional chartered member of the Institution of Civil Engineers. I then changed direction to jump into a new career in journalism.
Over the years with Emap, the combination of good training, drive, enthusiasm and often good fortune have enabled me to progress first to News Editor, then Deputy Editor before taking over as Editor in 2000. I now oversee the weekly magazine, two monthly sister titles, a comprehensive website and the editorial content of the many associated conferences, awards and events now run by NCE. I also have a group wide responsibility as Editorial Director - ensuring that best practice and experience is shared throughout the other magazines.
The combination of good training, drive and enthusiasm has enabled me to progress.
As Editor, my role has constantly evolved to take account of the changing publishing environment.While I remain intimately involved in the day to day running of the magazine and the management of the magazine’s team, my role has changed in the last ten years. Emap has consistently ensured that I have been given the skills and resources required to succeed in these new areas
Aside from the traditional journalistic activities, the modern B2B editor’s focus must include driving the new business development, supporting the commercial team and managing client relationships plus a host of outward facing activities such as chairing conferences, hosting awards ceremonies and fronting industry events and shows.
As Editor of NCE profession’s flagship publication I am dedicated to ensuring it reflects and leads the whole industry and is passionate about ensuring the next generation views the profession as a sound career option. Emap supports my ambition through continued investment in my career development and that of the entire NCE team.
