Since 1981 David has been writing about and reporting from places that are far away from European borders. He’s the author of 30 books, some of which are about Latin America and development issues. He has travelled to and written about approximately 150 countries.
David founded Global Reporting in 1996 and has been the company’s managing director ever since. He is also a writer and a photographer for a number of Global Reporting’s customers. In the recent years he has been working extensively with strategic communication.
“Global issues are becoming increasingly exciting, but also more complex, which is why more and more clients request for special competence that Global Reporting possesses. We are driven by passion and engagement. I myself have travelled and reported from around the world since I was 19 and I think that it is still equally fantastic to learn about different countries, to meet people in different environments and to learn about their lives and experiences. To experience new things, understanding the context and learning from other people’s lives is a powerful motivator for me.”

Alona is a journalist and communication specialist from Ukraine. She moved to Sweden to do a Master’s programme in Peace and Development Work at Linnaeus University. She continues her studies by working as an intern for Global Reporting.
Before coming to Sweden, Alona received a Master’s degree in journalism and worked as a journalist for Ukrainian media, covering issues like education and social welfare. Her last assignment was with United Nations Development programme in the Eastern conflict zone in Ukraine. There, she worked as a communication and reporting specialist for the projects focused on the recovery of social and economic infrastructure in the post-conflict territories. Alona’s interest in the population displacement also stems from this period, since her work for UNDP concerned a lot the life of IDPs – people who were forced to move within Ukraine escaping the atrocities of the armed conflict.
Some of the other topics Alona is interested in are the role of communication in peacebuilding, as well as in the local community development, and the use of digital media for development communication. Personally, she is involved in the development-sustainability dilemma, focusing on how developing countries can make their ways towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
“Being born in a developing country as turbulent as Ukraine might seem a tough luck, but I see it as an advantage. My work and studies concern complex topics, but my origin helps to remember that global trends are at the same time local issues. I believe that in development communication, this approach helps to see clearly who your reader is and make your content more appealing”.
