Nick Gibbs has edited magazines for nearly 30 years, launching titles as diverse as Sailing Today and British Woodworking, and most recently Living Woods. He retains a fascination for hand tools.

Editing has been his passion. Since 2007 he has run his own successful publishing business, producing a range of titles, for sale on the newsstands, by subscription and to provide contract magazines for businesses and associations.

He also has a small business making carved replicas of famous and favourite golf holes. “We can produce a replica of any hole, on any course, anywhere in the world.”

Giving talks has proved to be a new avenue for Nick’s skills as a communicator. “It reminds me of my first days as a would-be journalist, working on the university radio station, learning how to interview and report at a mic, usually on air live.”
