Rob Orchard

co-founder and editor Slow Journalism Company

Rob Orchard is the co-founder and editorial director of the Slow Journalism Company, the publisher of Delayed Gratification magazine, which revisits the events of the preceding quarter after the dust has settled and makes a virtue of being "Last to Breaking News". The publication, which launched in January 2011, is a labour of love that's designed to offer an antidote to PR-driven stories, knee-jerk reactions and churnalism. Prior to starting the Slow Journalism Company, Rob launched and ran magazines for Virgin Atlantic, created the Middle East's biggest travel magazine and worked as the editor of Time Out Dubai, Time Out Croatia and Time Out Paris.
