With immediate effect, Paul Godfrey returns to CPI Trade Media to work as Deputy Editor across the titles Truck & Fleet Middle East and Construction Machinery Middle East.
Many of you may remember Paul from his roles as MC at previous editions of the Truck & Fleet & Conference UAE and the Access & Handling Summit – and now, as well as further developing the events’ agendas and profile, he’ll be playing a new role in enriching the content and editorial voice of their anchor publications.
Paul is also a well-known media personality in the region, having pioneered magazines and events in the SME/enterprise sector, and hosting ground-breaking conferences such as Bold Talks, Insurex and SME Beyond Borders. He’s also a veteran of professional life in the UAE – recently celebrating his fourteenth anniversary as a resident – and runs an executive coaching business, PG International, which has mentored a raft of leading business VIPs in stagecraft, personal branding and presentation technique.
“Publishing is my natural home and I couldn’t be more delighted to return to CPI, which continues to build a pristine range of industry-leading titles with editorial integrity, featuring primary research and expert analysis that has great value for the growth and profitability of the sectors they represent,” Paul commented.
One of Paul’s first tasks will be to complete the programme for the upcoming Truck & Fleet Conference which returns for its second event on 22 March, 2021 at the Radisson Red in Dubai, explained editor Stephen White.
“I am delighted to reveal a new member of the team of Paul’s calibre,” he added. “Like any business, we are looking forwards at the start of 2021 and Paul’s background in SMEs will be vital in representing two exciting industry’s with bags of potential. Having previously stood in front of the industry at our previous event, I am sure he will help make the Truck & Fleet Conference a success.”
