Alex Brooks, Content and SEO Strategist, former Editor, Kidspot
Paul is one of the most talented and creative content execs I have worked with. A brilliant writer and editor, and able to turn his hand to any style of content across any platform. I cannot recommend him highly enough and would love to work with him again.
Geoff Campbell, Director, The Content Professionals, former Publishing Director, Emap
"Paul Merrill is a creative genius who has spent his career rewriting the script for publishing and content marketing in the UK and Australia. As Publishing Director of Emap Australia, I had the pleasure to work with Paul on major online and print launches and saw first-hand Paul’s unique combination of skills and his exceptional abilities as a creative leader. He brought exceptional consumer insight and an unconventional, innovative flair to everything he achieved.  
The fact that we presided over the most successful weekly consumer launch in over a decade is testament to Paul’s talents.”
Jo Runciman, Managing Director, Australian Geographic
I’ve had the honour of working with Paul a number of times over the years and, not only is he an absolute delight to work with, he's an inspirational content specialist with a commercial and pragmatic approach to delivering bespoke digital solutions to any audience.  
He's a highly skilled brand strategist and content marketer as well as a natural leader, popular with his teams and able to thrive in high-pressured situations. I can’t wait for a chance to engage him again in the future. 
Ben Cook, Senior Partnership Manager at WeThinkMedia
I had the pleasure of working with Paul on the launch of ZOO and its meteoric rise over the next 5 years. Paul has a natural gift for picking what will and won’t work, and was constantly evolving the product to keep it ahead of the game and had a brilliant gut feel for what his readers wanted. Highly commercial yet fiercely protective of the brand he always delivered clients an innovative solution without appearing to his cynical audience that he had sold out! A top bloke, with a wicked sense of humour, Paul ensured ZOO was not only market transformational but also great fun. He comes with my highest recommendation.
June Smith-Sheppard, Editorial Director, Bauer Media
One of the most creative and professional content editors in the business, and an all round top bloke. If only he weren't on the other side of the world I would love to work with Paul again. Anyone who gets the chance is very lucky indeed.
