Chris has a degree in English from Edinburgh University and Law from London Metropolitan University. As a journalist, he writes about the media, music and communication businesses on a daily basis, and as a result is a leading expert on these sectors, often commenting on them for other media, especially the BBC.   As well as being MD of the UnLimited Media Group, Chris is also Business Editor of CMU and oversees the production of ThreeWeeks each summer, online and in print, as well as presenting podcasts for both titles. He also programmes the convention side of The Great Escape, the UK’s premiere music business conference.   Over the last fifteen years he has led numerous creative and consulting projects in the music, media and communication sectors, and is also an acclaimed trainer, overseeing the UnLimited Insights training courses, and helping develop the Taylor Bennett Foundation programme that is enabling more diversity in PR.
