Do Something About It
A Media Man's Story - Bill Porter's Autobiography
Are you satisfied with the media? Does it lift you up or pull you down? Here is the story of one who believes that the media can be a decisive force for justice, freedom and peace in the 21st century.
As his wife told him, “If you are thinking like that, don’t just complain, do something about it!”
BILL PORTER worked as a freelance journalist in Asia, Europe and America. Returning to Britain he became the Chief Executive of the UK arm of a Dutch publishing multi-national. After holding executive positions with the Publishers Association and the Periodical Publishers, he was among the pioneers of electronic and database publishing.
Encouraged by his wife Sonja, he founded the International Communications Forum in 1990, and was Chairman for ten years. Roger Parkinson, then President of the World Association of Newspapers, stated that the ICF “had put the issue of the media’s effect on society onto the world’s agenda”.
In this colourful and intimate autobiography Bill Porter tells his entertaining and extraordinary story.
