We started ‘Galzac’s Guide to Expert Sources’ because we believe passionately that expert voices should be heard by the widest possible audience. We want to build a community of doers, thinkers and curious minds who want to share their ideas with the world.
‘Galzac’s Guide’ will amplify expert voices by making the media aware of their knowledge and experience, by matching their expertise with the topical stories of the day, and sharing their great ideas through social media.
We were inspired to name it ‘Galzac’s Guide’ by the pioneering publishers of 19th century Ireland and the gazettes, chronicles and guide books they produced to document Irish life for the very first time. People like Ambrose Leet and Henry Farrar who in the days before telephones compiled the first directories of Irish life.
The 2013 edition will combine a must-have print edition with a dynamic website and social media resource that will connect Ireland’s expert sources with the media. We want to be the bible of experts on every journalist’s desk, laptop and smart phone.
We will grow the community of experts by publishing a print and online directory, a daily social media match up service, and regular emails on topical news stories.
