Him & Her

We're here for you
Coralie is still very much involved in the magazine world, working with Sean on their community titles and loves nothing more than seeing the lives of publishers grow and improve through initiatives like the Association and getting people together to support, share and have fun.
Producing seven magazine titles each month is no mean feat but Sean constantly seeks ways to do things better, smarter and always pours his unique view of the world into everything he does. Come to one of our events and you’ll be sure to get one of Sean’s legendary ‘man hugs’!
