Mr Steve Keenan

Co-Founder, Travel Perspective
I'm a journalist and have covered the travel industry for several media outlets since 1987. I finally left print in 2004 when Deputy Travel Editor of The Times to become the first online travel editor at a national paper, building a site for both The Times and Sunday Times in the UK. I introduced video, livestream reporting, blogging and helped an established industry to slowly begin to understand the potential of digital. I left in 2011, to co-found travelperspective.co.uk, a consultancy with Mark Frary to help train the travel industry to undergo a similar metamorphosis, as well as grappling with social media. We worked with ski and adventure tour operators, hotel chains, cruise companies and more, while having run digital and social media seminars at World Travel Market since 2012. Still writing from home in Dorset and now also running Puggs Meadow Flowers, growing flowers for events, florists and markets.
