Editorial and Themes

Each magazine carries a different theme relating to business and upcoming themes.

Please note – while there is a theme that runs throughout each edition, editorial content from members does not have to be aligned to any given theme.

The first editorial section of the magazine is members’ news but there are also opportunities to be included in other sections such as international, business support, the focus feature and even politics.

Editorial coverage in the magazine is free. Submission of news items for the magazine does not guarantee publication. The editorial team reserves the right to edit submissions accordingly to ensure content is aligned to the look, feel, style and consistency of the magazine and, due to time pressure and the sheer number of submissions, it is not possible to provide proofs to contributors prior to the magazine going to print.

Submissions should include the six basic ingredients of a news story – who, what, where, when, why and how. They should be concise, factually accurate, topical and free from comment, ie, only state you are the ‘leading manufacturer of life-size plastic sheep’ if you can prove it. We will cut out what we deem to be promotional makeweight.

Think - would you want read your story if it were about another company or person?
