About Me


I'm Nellie de Goguel, an award-winning content producer, writer, editor, interviewer, comms expert, systems thinker, and occasional panellist / public speaker / moderator. I'm currently an Executive Producer at the Financial Times. 

I try to make sense of the world through words, data, imagery and creative formats — anything that clarifies the chaos and connects with a desired audience.  

My subject specialties include sustainability, climate, ESG, just transition, oceans and the blue economy, cities, food, film and tv, and cannabis (to name just a few). 

I started my career as head writer for PerezHilton.com and have since... 

Throughout that time I earned an MSc in Sustainable Development from Trinity College Dublin, was communications chair for the Rhode Island Food Policy Council, won three RI Press Association Awards, and moonlighted as a bartender. 

On a more personal note, I live in Worthing with my wolf-dog Basil and serve as the Communications Officer for the local Green Party. 

“While I live I hope.”
