The First Year of Corporate Dispatch

Reading Time: 6 minutes

Today Corporate Dispatch is celebrating it’s first anniversary from it’s launch. Twelve months during which a lot was achieved and even more is planned in the months and years ahead as we continue to strive to improve and give a valuable insight to the world around us.

Jesmond Saliba, Executive Chairman of Corporate ID Group, of which Corporate Dispatch forms part, said that Corporate Dispatch is a unique platform which aggregates news, based on verification of multiple sources. The platform, is supported by the Group’s advisory arm Ci Consulta, which amongst other services provides media monitoring services, intelligence sourcing, geopolitical insights and news analysis. It also complements the group’s strategic corporate communications arm Corporate Identities.  The platform has reached new levels and has a growing number of subscribers and followers through its various multiple channels of outreach.

Tonio Galea, the Editor of Corporate Dispatch and Senior researcher at Corporate ID Group said “At Corporate Dispatch, our main priority is to give an unbiased and informed view of the world around us to help our readers develop an informed opinion with attention to distinct visuals from some of the worlds best photographers through the EPA photo agency.  The main focus is to try and give an all round view of the various aspects of the world around us, with particular attention to the European Union and the Mediterranean region, be it business, travel or otherwise.  The obstacles are not few but with the same dedication we had in our first year we will continue to make every effort to inform the reader when it counts.”

Meanwhile these are some of the most read news since the journey of Corporate Dispatch started one year ago.

Most opinion piece read:

Opinion: Teachers lose, every time – Dr. Michelle Attard Tonna – Respect was the general plea of the teachers. For the last three days, as soon as news of the strike hit the headlines, a torrent of verbal abuse was hurled at teachers, even by the same parents whose children are taught, cared for, loved and nurtured by teachers. It was generally taken that teachers do not need to strike, that they misunderstood the Education Act and that this was a partisan, anti-PL move to create unrest in the country. Teachers found themselves explaining why they felt a strike was necessary, justifying their work, the need to maintain standards in teacher preparation and qualification, the amount of time they spend in non-contact hours for marking and preparation, and the amount of continuing professional development they attend regularly to remain abreast with educational developments. Every teacher and every educator in my newsfeed was expressing disappointment at the way they were being regarded and treated by society – essentially, it all boiled down to them creating a problem should they not turn up to work on Monday morning, and very little, if any, concern was being expressed at the real issue at hand. Many people did not even understand what the teachers were protesting about, or failed to understand, as explanations were aplenty. – 6th October 2018
