Each month, the printed edition of South East Business offers further advertorial feature. This spans a diverse subject breadth including skills and training, finance, intellectual property, commercial property, legal coverage and expert comment to complete an overall package of incisive business writing.

The online companion to the magazine www.southeastbusiness.com offers extended content with breaking daily regional and national news, editor’s blog, travel and motoring coverage, plus supporting video material.

Christine Rayner


After 37 years as a local newspaper journalist, mainly in north Kent, I was made redundant at the end of 2011 when Northcliffe closed three of the four titles of which I was editor. Since then, I have been freelancing as a writer, book editor and lecturer.

Over the years, I have met so many interesting, innovative and hard-working people and I’m sure this will continue in my new role as editor of South East Business. Along the way, I’ve heard some great tales of enterprise and endurance against the odds and have always tried to find the story behind the headline. I look forward to hearing yours. Do get in touch.

I’m married to a journalist, we have two grown-up children and two grandsons.
