It’s been a whirlwind first four weeks here in Manhattan since QF USA opened its doors on September 10th. But we’re fully up and running and morale is high!

As I write, Catherine is wrapping a shoot day at Diageo North America whilst I’m off to the AFAR 2018 Travel Vanguard, celebrating key players in the travel industry and making new connections along the way.

I’ve certainly been rushing around the city since we launched – meeting with agencies, publishers, brands and government entities for presentations and conversations around potential business. When we’re not out and about, we are enjoying the new office – located within Hunter PR’s space on the corner of Madison Square Park, it’s an incredible location. There are some excellent local food spots, if you fancy a visit?

The team at Hunter could not have been more welcoming and have collectively made these first weeks incredibly smooth for us. The weekend will see Ben P fly over to install our first two edit suites, ready for post-production to take place on our first projects which have already been commissioned.

Tomorrow sees a visit to the famous B&H store to get further kit. Not necessarily my favourite kind of Manhattan shopping expedition… but similarly expensive!

As I look ahead to our second month of US business it’s exciting. This feels like a city where opportunity will knock, you just have to have the energy to go and find it.
