Going simple: The 1 trick to great business copywriting
Enrico Manzo has been in the business of tailoring men’s haute couture for 20 years. His tailoring house Principe di Eleganza offers Italian nonchalance and “sprezzatura” to men the world over. He was in Dubai to meet clients, where he was hosted by La Villa in Jumeirah. Copywriter in Dubai and sartorial enthusiast Hisham Wyne was […]
Okay, so I’ve been professionally hosting events as an MC and presenter in Dubai for the past 8 odd years now. And just like everything else, the more you do the better you get. Here are the 10 tips I’d give anyone who wants to set out being a presenter in Dubai — or anywhere […]
MC & Presenter Dubai: Hisham Wyne takes on several potent espresso shots in one afternoon — and lives to tell a trembly tale. It’s become a bit of a tradition.

And be we, I mean […]
While we were meandering the Emerald Isle, imbibing all manner of bonhomie and bubbles, and partaking in non-stop victualisation, there were still scraps of work to be done. Here there be videos that I scripted while on planes and cars and homes and hotels. They’ve turned out rather well, I thought. Titan Travels positions itself […]
