5 minute interview with Paul Hamblin

5 minute interview with Paul Hamblin

Paul is an ex Naval Officer. After navigating ship’s around the world (and receiving a Commendation in the 2015 honours list) he then went on to edit the Mariner’s Handbook (a book used to navigate ship’s around the world).

After his time at sea and writing about the sea he achieved a level 8 in Strategic Direction and Leadership from the Chartered Management Institute after undertaking the prestigious Advanced Management Achievement course at Manchester Business School.

Paul has had an interest in technology, the media and anything geeky his whole life so although it may seem like a bit of a leap for him to run a media company it seems perfectly normal to him! He runs the business side of things and is the in-house geek for anything from VFX pipelines to websites.

Treehouse Digital will be exhibiting at The London Book Fair this March in our new Cross Media Collection, for more information please click here.
