My professional details

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.

I am also joint owner and Managing Editor of CROSSLINES Global Report, a newsjournal on humanitarian issues, and co-founder of the NGO International Centre for Humanitarian Reporting (succeeded by Media Action International). I have designed a number of websites, teaching materials for strategy-makers on trade issues and tourism (Internet and CD-ROM based), and different kinds of publications. I have also been communications advisor for a number of projects targeted to executive-level officials and higher. I have certificates in Web design for educational purposes with XML (University of Geneva, December 2004), CSS and Javascript (Virtual University, December 2005).
