I’m Charis Palmer and I’m currently a Business Editor with The Conversation. I founded Banking Review Media in 2003. At the time I knew a bit about banking and virtually nothing about publishing, but I did know there wasn’t nearly enough collaboration and communication happening between people in the financial services industry. So I set out to fix that.

The world has changed quite a bit since 2003, and thankfully we’re now all a lot more connected. Along the way I worked out it was possible to pay the bills without having to work for ‘big media’.

I believe niche and specialist media will play a major role in the future of the publishing industry, an industry that is in the middle of a major cycle of change.
