60 seconds with Land Mobile's Philip Mason

Philip Mason discusses his time with Land Mobile and Critical Communications Today and his imminent move to MA Exhibitions

How do you spend your time at work?

Writing features and news stories, interviewing contacts and attending events. I also edit the BAPCO Journal, a quarterly focusing on public safety comms. It’s a challenging but incredibly fulfilling – and often quite exciting – role, where I’m always learning something new.

What’s your next big challenge?

I’m moving to become the editor at MA Exhibitions, with particular responsibility for
the BAPCO Show and Critical Communications World.

This will primarily involve curating printed and online publications to help promote the events as well as informing visitors of new developments, reflecting the thought leadership which both are renowned for.

What advice would you give someone just starting out in the digital communications industry?

Absolutely no idea. In terms of how to communicate with members of the press, however, always remember that what you think is interesting and what they think is interesting are likely to be two very different things.
