“Anything that rewards the efforts of brilliant content creators is something to support. I’m looking forward to seeing work that shows it really understands its audience and is finding innovative ways to serve them.”
Conor is a multi-award-winning content creative and strategist. He served as Editor of music magazine NME for seven years in the noughties where he won both BSME and PPA awards and was voted one of the 1,000 most influential people in London by the Evening Standard. Conor took the NME multi-platform, launching NME TV, NME Radio, six national tours a year, The Big Gig at The O2, ticketing and merchandising operations, and even launched and hosted the NME Awards USA in LA. He served as Chair of the BSME in 2009.
He went on to be Editor of TopGear Magazine at the BBC where he relaunched both the magazine and website. After delivering a launch project for News UK he went on to join content marketing agency Redwood as Executive Content Director, producing strategies and solutions for clients including Barclays, Virgin Media, The Co-op and The National Lottery.
He now leads AllTogetherNow, the innovative multi-service digital engagement agency he established at The & Partnership working with (among others) Adidas, Virgin Money, Lexus, Ibiza Rocks and Argos.
He still writes as Motors Editor of luxury lifestyle magazine Tempus.
However, he’s also been sued by Morrissey, featured in Russell Brand’s autobiography and been held personally responsible for The Kaiser Chiefs, so it’s not all been fabulous.
