BECAUSE... "THIS IS A DAWN OF A NEW ERA OF ETHICAL BRITISH MEDIA," INSISTS CHRISTIAN PUBLISHER -
“Our company offers a specialised media consultancy service to churches, charities and other religious organisations seeking to expand their message and generate a successful income source via online, digital and print publishing.” - Duncan Williams has over two decades of media experience; he is chairman of a long established regional newspaper and magazine group, speaks regularly on BBC radio's religious and community programmes and has lectured at the Church and Media Conference.
"The successful multi-dimensional media project needs financial profitability, as well as a beneficial message, as a key ingredient... To invest means to increase outlay, to have faith and to encourage expansion and return. In monetary terms this ought to be investing money for good willed purposes so as to reap further dividends of the same. Money and goodwill need not, and must not be alien. The alignment of the two is the right use of financial expertise. Money is, after all, only a proxy for actual goods or services, and it can be an active and very potent energy for good works." - Duncan Williams - Christian Media Investor and member of Christians in Finance - Speaking at UPLOAD : Standing Together - Christians in Journalism and theMediaNet.org held at All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, February 19th, 2011
"...My aim (company agenda) is to publish positive news which is supportive of Christian values. British regional magazines and newspapers have a pivotal role in our local communities, both in the reporting of stories and in the employment of staff. For ten years now I have tried to make certain that a proportion of employees that I work with are deliberately drawn from marginalised sections of our society; including recovering addicts/alcoholics, ex-offenders and members lower income communities. Never in preference of those who are already experienced or qualified, yet at the same time offering real job opportunities that can serve as work experience, even rehabilitation, to many people keen to be given a break. Having been involved with CAP (Church Action on Poverty) for many years, I am all too aware that the poor, and these other groups mentioned, have far less access to media and do need a voice to communicate effectively to wider society. Believe me - this isn't simply a philanthropic gesture; as experience has proven that exactly these same types of people work doubly hard and with a passion, once given an opportunity to be a part of, rather than apart from..."- Duncan Williams, speaking at the annual Church and Media Conference held in Derby.
