Richard Clayton

Chief correspondent

I joined Informa at the end of June 2017 from IHS Fairplay. My role now, as it was for the past two years at IHS, is to bring more than 30 years’ experience in maritime journalism to the business. This means I won’t just be writing opinion and insight pieces for the various sites, newsletters, and magazines, I will also be connecting with our colleagues in sales, marketing, and events to help build our presence. I have experience in chairing round table discussions, seminars and webinars, business and breakfast briefings; I have delivered keynote speeches at IMO events and shipping organisation events; I have written white papers on topics such as annual previews and key trends in the industry; and spoke to small groups both in-house and externally to set out how I think shipping is evolving.

My wife and I run a small Bed & Breakfast business in the beautiful Wye Valley, where we welcome walkers on the Offa’s Dyke Path, visitors to the England/Wales border, and friends who are passing through.
