About me

Guy Clapperton, keynote speaker, near-futurist, media trainer

Hi – I’m Guy Clapperton, freelance journalist and speaker. Thank you for visiting my site. I am here to help with media training and interview practice, writing and editing publications and facilitating/MC-ing events. 

I’ve been a technology and business journalist full time since January 1989, starting on the trade press  and making my way into the nationals as a freelance since 1993. You may have seen me in the Guardian, Times, Sunday Telegraph, Observer, Independent and most recently the New Statesman (particularly as launch editor of New Statesman Tech).

I run media training sessions in which clients come face to face with me as a current journalist rather than an ex-practitioner. I facilitate conferences and am an experienced keynote speaker on near future developments.

Depending on your needs, here’s a quick set of links to the rest of this website:
