About Paul D. Chilvers-Grierson
Born and raised in New Zealand as the son of a British doctor and nurse, at the age of 22 Paul left for Germany to complete his postgraduate studies – and stayed there for almost 25 years before moving with his family to an idyllic corner of South West Scotland that reminded him of the country he grew up in.
After successfully training as a PR consultant and editor with a small German agency near Frankfurt/Main he went on to do PR for some of the world’s biggest and smallest companies, and even whole countries, developing a reputation with both clients and media alike for integrity, diligence, thoroughness – and the willingness to go the extra mile for those he serves.
When Paul published and edited his own magazines about New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific, he used the skills he had developed getting chief editors to gladly write pieces for his clients’ publications to attract regular contributions by top journalists, key executives at leading national and international corporations – and even governing politicians and the German ambassador to Australia (the guy who developed the Asia strategy for the Federal Government of Germany).
He also used these skills to pull together support and resources for filming high-level documentaries in Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti for German and French television.
Moving on from publishing physical media – including a coffee table book joint venture with a top German photographer and a Munich publishing house – Paul edited a fortnightly email newsletter on Australasia for over eleven years, wrote business plans for migrants to New Zealand, Australia and Canada and translated business and marketing material for German companies that are household names around the world – and for some so specialized you’ve never heard of them unless you are in their particular niche.
When he discovered internet marketing, Paul applied the same traits that had made him a dependable resource for clients and media to develop a network of key contacts and to research and produce material designed with one person in mind – the user.
