We are delighted to inform you that Charmont Media Global has been appointed as the new publisher of Rolling Inspiration, the official mouthpiece of the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA).
Rolling Inspiration, a lifestyle publication for people with mobility impairments, has enjoyed a loyal following over its 15-year existence. Independent research has revealed that a whopping 87 percent of readers and subscribers avidly read the publication. Furthermore, 71 percent of readers use the advertisers’ products!
As such, Rolling Inspiration is an extremely powerful medium. “We believe that the time is ripe for Rolling Inspiration to move to the next level, which is why we have retained the services of a highly successful publishing company with a proven track record,” explains Ari Seirlis, CEO of QASA. Established in 2000, Charmont Media Global publishes a number of quality titles, including FOCUS on Transport and Logistics, EduTrans, The Transport Manager’s Handbook, SA Mover and SHEQ Management. The company is also active in other media, producing a number of websites, online newsletters, apps and television shows.
Charleen Clarke, editor at Charmont Media Global, says that the company has great plans for Rolling Inspiration. “It is already a stirring and motivational magazine, but we believe it is time for a complete revamp of the publication. Readers and advertisers can therefore expect a bold and contemporary new look, quality illustrations and top-notch journalism.”
Many of the content themes will remain unchanged, but will be enhanced and tweaked. Rolling Inspiration is fortunate to offer readers a wealth of information provided by regular contributors, who share their knowledge of issues such as legal matters, medical issues, sexuality, travel and access. “These will, of course, continue. However, we intend providing those with mobility impairments with information, empowerment and entertainment. We will highlight the quality of life of people with mobility impairments – in terms of education, work, love, sex, sports, recreation, travel … the list goes on. We cannot wait to commence a new era in the history of this life-changing magazine,” says Clarke.
Assistant editor of Rolling Inspiration, Claire Rencken, adds: “In the short time we have been working on the publication, we have already met the most amazing, inspirational individuals, from whom we have learnt so much. This has just been a taste of what’s to come. We look forward to many more such encounters in the future.”
