About us

Africa-Ahead-masthead_Green-650x139_transparentAfah Publishing Ltd is a publishing house specialising in the delivery of targeted newsletters to niche sectors of global industries. To date, it has focused on the insurance and risk management categories, providing key information, the latest news and analysis through regular newsfeeds and a supporting website, bringing vital intelligence to that community.

We are a hub for case studies and videos, sharing experience and expertise across a well-defined community to build capacity across a region. To do that, we have a team of experienced journalists to source and provide up-to-date news, data, reports and commentary on specific subjects relevant to our readership, supported by expert designers.

Our team is led by:

Editorial:

Liz Booth – Editor, Africa Ahead: the Sustainability Challenge

Email: lbooth@afahpublishing.com

I have more than 30 years’ experience as a journalist and editor, working on a mix of consumer and business titles but, for the past decade, have concentrated on the insurance and risk sector. Having grown up in west Africa and then lived in South Africa, I have a life-long commitment to the continent and a passionate interest in its future success.

Commercial:

Les Mitchell – Commercial director, AFAH Publishing

Email: lesmitchell@afahpublishing.com

I bring a wealth of commercial experience to AFAH, having been a director of several household-name companies and running my own businesses for more than a decade. Although not directly related to the publishing sector, my commercial awareness will enhance the AFAH offer while at the same time ensure commercial considerations steer clear of editorial matters. 

Design:

Chris Morrish – Design lead, AFAH Publishing.com

Email: cmorrish@afahpublishing.com

As a sub-editor, production editor, art editor and WordPress developer, I have 15 years’ experience in financial publishing with leading organisations including Incisive Media, the Chartered Insurance Institute and FT Business. At AFAH Publishing, I am responsible for the design, sub-editing and web production of Africa Ahead: the Sustainability Challenge.
