I have a BSc (first-class honours) and a Diploma in Environment and Development from the UK's Open University and an MA in Mass Communications from Leicester University (Centre for Mass Communications Research, UK). I recently taught Communications and Media Studies at the International University Geneva as adjunct professor and took a PhD (magna cum laude, awarded August 2004) at the European Graduate School (www.egs.edu) in Media and Communications.
In addition for the past 25 years, I have been a communications consultant for a number of international organizations, including the World Economic Forum and International Chamber of Commerce, the UNCTAD/WTO International Trade Centre, the Swiss Science Council's magazine Vision, IUCN-The World Conservation Union, the United Nations Environment Programme and Rolex Awards for Enterprise, among others. I have long experience in journalism of all kinds. I have worked for Reuters News Agency, The Guardian, Swiss Radio International and other media enterprises. I am now developing a network on new media issues.
