About You and X-Ray Magazine / AquaScope Media...

My name:
Peter Symes

My job function in the company:
Publisher & Editor-in-chief

Years in business:
20 years

About X-Ray Magazine / AquaScope Media:
X-Ray Magazine is the longest running and arguably the largest digital dive periodical on the planet.

Goal(s) for 2013:
Just keep an eye on us. We got a few more surprises up our sleeves ;o)

Greatest achievement in 2012:
Being awarded the MTA press award ahead of BBC, Conde Nast Traveller and Frankfurter Allgemeiner Zeitung.

About You, "The Professional"...

What I find most rewarding about my job:
It gives me an opportunity to apply innovation and lateral thinking to come up with novel solutions to difficult challenges.

What I am most proud of (professionally):
Having built a true multinational business entity from scratch and made it successful even during times of adversity and in the face of widespread skepticism.

Greatest piece of business advice I ever received:
Listen carefully, opportunity sometimes presents itself very softly.

Where I see myself and/or business in 5 years:
"Citius, Altius, Fortius"

About You, "The Person"... 

Favorite place to dive:
What kind of question is that? The world is a BIG place. But I like cold water. There is something 'real' about it.

Most memorable dive experience:
Having a pregnant manta proudly present its belly to me.

Favorite quote:
"Lead, follow or get of the way" ...said nicely

Something people would be surprised to learn about me:
That while I love diving and photography that I have many more unrelated interests outside diving, from languages, math, history, art and cooking and much more. And that I am quite capable handyman.
