The top 10 has been measured in terms of unique visitors to each interview.
In reverse order:
10. David Hayes
David spoke to us as part of our London Fashion Week special, in his role as acting deputy fashion editor at the FT. David revealed how the FT covers the week and loving the Topshop Café.
9. Rosalind Jana
Rosalind is the author of Clothes, Cameras and Coffee, and former winner of the Vogue Talent Contest 2011 (writing). Rosalind spoke to us about her future, British brands and working with PRs. She would like to be played in a film by Marion Cotillard because ‘she’s a wonderful actress’.
8. Fiona Bugler
Freelance editor and author of She Runs She Writes, Fiona talked to us about her blog relaunch, fitness lifestyle and career. She also revealed that she has done a Paula Radcliffe, and she’d like to be played by Woody Allen in a film.
7. Anna Simpson
Anna Simpson is the editor of Green Futures magazine. She talked to us about sustainable futures and global conversations. Anna also told us that her favourite sustainable invention was closed-loop plastic recycling for 3D printers and that she would like to be played in a film by Emma Thompson.
6. Andy Jarosz
Freelance travel writer, and former optometrist, Andy spoke to Cision about life as a freelancer and fitting travel into his personal life. Unsurprisingly for a frequent traveller, Andy would like to be able to fly very quickly or teleport as his super power, and he chose Nicolas Cage to play him in a film.
5. Sarah Marshall
Sarah has recently joined the Wall Street Journal as its social media editor covering Europe, Africa and the Middle East, but she spoke to us when she was still technology editor at Journalism.co.uk. She explained lean journalism, getting out and about, and working with PRs. When asked who would play her in a film, Sarah said: ‘There’s a film called Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I can’t remember the name of the actress in the film but she’s the ex of Russell Brand in it and it definitely wouldn’t be her’.
4. Tina Edwin-Banerjee
Another travel writer, Tina is the editor of the World Travel Guide. She spoke to us about bespoke content and press trips. Tina revealed all the places she’d still like to travel to and chose Freida Pinto to play her in a film.
3. Max Wooldridge
Travel broadens the mind, and apparently makes for popular interviewees. Max writes for the Mail on Sunday, Food and Travel magazine and the BBC. He told us that being the son of a famous sports writer – Ian Wooldrige – was both a help and a hindrance. His choice of super power wasn’t typical, in that he wished to be exactly like he was when he was 20, and as for who he would like to him play him in a film, it was a five-way toss-up between Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Walter Matthau, Ross Kemp and Cate Blanchett.
2. Guy Cocker
Guy spoke to us after becoming a freelance journalist specialising in video games for the BBC, Sky News, Wired and Stuff. Guy spoke to us about working with BAFTA and the computer game industry changing. Guy would like to be played in a film by Elijah Wood.
1. Oliver Thring
Then assistant food editor at The Sunday Times magazine, Oliver spoke to us about trends in the industry and wanting more PR. He also said he’d like to be played in a film by Whoopi Goldberg. Oliver joined Cision for breakfast in early December where he discussed best PR practice in front of a crowd of PR professionals.
