Elizabeth Moscrop >>
A pilot and author, Liz has had a stimulating writing and communications career, with some training thrown in for good measure. Career highlights to date include interviewing John Travolta, Jackie Chan and William Shatner.
She's had quite a trip before getting that lucky. She started out teaching drama to inner city kids in Liverpool, segueing into performing and promoting stand up comedy...sadly a major career handicap was a complete inability to remember jokes. God knows how she did it for five years.
She then moved to the BBC news and current affairs publicity department. She was (un)fortunate enough to be the public relations gopher for Martin Bashir's first big interview with Princess Diana.
Tired of glueing 300ft of press cuttings to the BBC archive file, she leapt into Goldman Sachs' presentations department which took her to Hong Kong......where she was snaffled first by the China Internet Corporation (the first Chinese company to list on NASDAQ) and ultimately by ehealthcareasia as their Director of Corporate Communications. She was their first employee and the company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange within five months. Lots of 80 hour weeks and business breakfasts later the internet company went the way of many in the dot com boon, so she flew to Long Beach to learn to fly planes.
Now totally hooked she earns her living writing about aviation and, in common with the birdflies team, helping flight training schools, conference producers and financial services providers with their internal and external communications. She has many years of corporate internal and external communications, newsletter production, web writing and marketing under her belt.
Having worked for herself most of her life Liz appreciates the bottom line and works with her clients to produce best value, ie delivering desired results for the optimal price. She writes for aviation publications all over the world including Aviation Today, Arabian Aerospace, BART International, and Aircraft Interiors magazine amongst others. An expert in female aeronautical history, she co authored the book "The 100 Greatest Women in Aviation" with Sanjay Rampal.
