A fab new magazine called Gallery launched in Guernsey on 11/11/11 with their ‘Numero Uno‘ issue and I was privileged to be asked to contribute.
The magazine already exists in Jersey and having seen previous examples of the style of it, I was very excited about it coming to Guernsey. There seemed something different about it than the other magazines in the market over here. Good quality paper, full of a variety of different articles and a funky edge to it.
My first job for them was to interview a lovely group of ladies who are the Siren Electric String Quartet who were visiting the island for the Lady Taverner’s Silver Anniversary Ball at Beau Sejour. I had previous interviewing experience from my years in recruitment and HR but I had never done an interview quite like this before.
I did lots of research on them as I hadn’t heard of them before and my first thought was how beautiful they all were! I listened to some of their work and was genuinely impressed and excited about meeting them. I headed off to Beau Sejour with a list of questions which I felt were not only factual but also fun so they could open up and have a laugh with me. They were doing their sound check when I arrived so I was very fortunate to hear them live from the back of the hall…….
