WHO ARE WE?
Connotations is run by Anthony Green.
Born in the UK and living now for over twenty years
in Christchurch, New Zealand, Tony has over thirty years’
experience of working in Singapore and travelling around Southeast
Asia (**). Add to that many years spent in education (and a much
shorter time spent working in offices, an aircraft factory, and
even driving London buses) and you get a broad base of experience
and knowledge; a pretty large comfort zone and the possibility of
a wide-ranging empathy for people.
But nobody works alone. If you listen to other
people and hear how they see things then over time you build a network
and those good connections and friendships mean we can draw on the
knowledge, the conversations and the skills of others. In this case
it’s created links across different communities, languages,
faiths, and a wide range of professional specialisations.
(**) So, no surprise, a good deal of our work has
been done in Southeast Asia, and Singapore in particular. Though
much of the writing has related to the Muslim community, our approach
is one of openness and inclusivity. The copy-editing work takes
in many other fields.
