Miss Jennifer Richardson

Lecturer in Journalism


I am a B2B journalism specialist, having worked my way up from Reporter to Editor of C+D, the leading media brand for UK community pharmacy.

I have had several awards successes along the way -- including PPA New Section Editor of the Year -- and led her team to many others --including a shortlisting for the Guardian/Private Eye Paul Foot Award for investigative journalism, and BSME Best Original Digital Feature Idea.

I have first-hand experience of grappling with the many challenges facing the modern journalist/editor -- such as introducing paid-for online-content and launching events -- as well as more traditional skills such as successful campaigning journalism.

As well as lecturing at Kingston University, in September 2017 I join the BMJ (British Medical Journal) team as Features Editor.
