Henderson Media Consultants provide advice to individuals and companies through tailored media strategies that focus on the architecture and design sectors and affiliated public markets.
Jan commenced her, now thirty year, role in the design industry with the award winning and internationally recognised interior design company, Mitchelson and Henderson. It was here that she instinctively understood that a keen eye for design was not enough to sustain a business. Effectively Jan saw the need for exemplar client and media relations as a means to create advocates and thereby a perpetuating broadening client base. Positive media coverage was key to this expansion and Jan quickly evolved a strategic and deliberate approach to this side of the industry. Indeed, it is her customer relation and media management skills that have seen her excel in the design, catering, legal, furnishing and publishing industries. Moreover her recent position as Associate Publisher with Architecture Media saw these skills rise to the fore as she introduced awards and generated and oversaw the appropriate sponsorship to make a lasting mark in the industry. Similarly, in her role as Editor of (Inside) Interior Design Review for Niche Media, Jan, while responsible for all aspects of the magazine, was also directly responsible for the Idea Awards, now a highly regarded award staple in the design industry. Her role with Niche was recognised in 2008 when Jan was named Editor of the Year.
Currently Jan is editor at Architel.tv, co-editor of inside magazine and writes and consults to a select group of clients within the architecture and design community.
