Reasons to be proud


Today we have announced a major appointment for Rail Business Daily and, indeed, the Business Daily Group.

Richard Clinnick has joined the team – we have a full write-up here, but many will already know the huge string of achievements that have made him a serious force in rail journalism. He will be heading up Inside Track, as the publication goes monthly.

In just a short time, the Business Daily Group has built a fantastic team across the board. In the publications team, that includes Danny Longhorn, bringing his print and broadcast experience, and then there is Nigel Wordsworth, who needs no introduction if you love rail and like to read about it.

But whether it is the top-end marketing team, the leading-edge designers, web experts, community managers or business growth specialists, the Business Daily Group has constantly built on being a force for good and delivering for our readers, community and client base.

I’m proud to play a small part in that.

Meanwhile, I hope pride is something every one of the amazing 25,000 rail workers trained in life-saving techniques by the Samaritans will feel. What they do makes a tremendous difference, and it is a privilege to write about the great work Samaritans, Network Rail and the wider industry does. This is one of the top features in this weeks Rail Insider, and with good reason.

A great way to see this considerate action make a difference is in Vital’s Suicide Prevention Patrollers. They have announced this week that they have saved 100 lives in only four years. The initiative, which sees them work with Network Rail and British Transport Police, sees them communicate with vulnerable people in rail environments, help them get to safety and then make sure they have the essential support they need afterwards.
