A Year in Review 2.0

As Beyond The Title reaches its second birthday, I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to reflect on the past year and chart the amazing calibre of people who have graced the Beyond The Title microphone. Once again I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity of the following stars who have selflessly given up their valuable time to give me an unique insight into where they see themselves in that specific moment of time – something which I still find quite extraordinary. To think that I have this growing catalogue of celebrity insights is something which fills me with immense pride and feel so very lucky to have met such wonderful people who are all formidable assets to their profession.

 

In the year that I had my first piece of work published, in a funny sort of way I felt I had more of an understanding of the sheer determination which go a long way to making them the people that they are. I thought this maybe gave me a more insightful angle than before and in turn increased the quality of Beyond The Title’s output whilst maintaining its brief to chart the ever-changing world of entertainment. Of course this would not be possible without the dedicated support of my three personal assistants; James Hudson, Ben Turner and Will Nicholson who help me with everything from being my voice on the interviews to escorting me wherever I need to go. In short they’re vital to everything I do (now you know the reason for the variety of voices on the interviews!).

 

So if you’re feeling brave, let’s celebrate the last twelve months of Beyond The Title:

So as we celebrate our second anniversary, we look to the future in anticipation of meeting more fascinating and inspiring cultural figures from all walks of entertainment. Thanks so much for all the support and encouragement you have shown over the past two years which I hope will continue for many years to come as my output becomes slicker and more frequent. In the following year I hope to grow the website even more and reach out to larger audiences with consistent content on both the website and Social Media. In short there’s a whole lot more from Beyond The Title and I can’t wait to show you what’s next!
