There's a bit of a rejig here, which is a good excuse to get your views on the magazine

Spring is the season of transformation and growth, and there has been a bit of that going on at Pulse.

Jo Haynes, who has been editor for nearly three years and group editor since Christmas, has just seen her role expand once again.

She's taking on responsibility for a whole gamut of commercial projects, central among them ensuring editorial standards across Pulse's burgeoning seminars programme, which has gone from being a spin-off to a very significant part of what we do here.

I'm therefore going to be taking on day-to-day running of Pulse magazine as its new editor, although Jo will retain an editor-in-chief role along with her other duties.

Now, I can hardly claim to be a new broom. I've been at Pulse for almost exactly five years, so if there's something you don't like about the magazine, there's a fair chance my fingerprints will be on it somewhere.

That said, whenever there's a management change at an organisation, it provides an opportunity to review what you're doing, get a bit of feedback, and possibly think about one or two changes.

I'd really like to hear what you think of Pulse. Is our news hitting the spot? How about the balance of our features coverage? Is there anything you'd like to see in the magazine which we don't currently provide?

You can even tell me what you think about my blog, although remember, journalists have feelings too.

Give me your feedback here, or if you'd prefer, drop me an email at

My editorial remit extends only to the magazine, so if you have a comment specifically on the website contact PulseToday editor John Robinson on, or email Jo at for any feedback on the Pulse seminars programme.
