Lee Mannion

Journalist, Writer, Editor

Location icon United Kingdom

I've spent the last four years writing about social enterprise and impact investing as the former editor of Pioneers Post magazine and social enterprise correspondent for the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Pioneers Post covers social enterprise, social innovation, responsible business and social investment - basically, any business that is good for the world.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation delivers 'under reported news' and is there to advance socio-economic progress. All my stories went out on the wires and appeared in publications all over the world.

On here you can mostly find other examples of freelance writing I did before I took on those roles. The Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Metro and The Telegraph are some of the titles I've written features for. Generally I'm interested in the stuff that makes us happy.

I also wrote a daisy chain of celebrity interviews called Pass Me On (https://passmeon.wordpress.com/) which I wrote 2011-2016.

Why I'm taking 'peak beard' seriously - Telegraph

Sure, the beard resurgence may have started as a trend for cool hipsters. But now your brother, your boss and the kid from Harry Potter all have one. It's been said before, and I have to agree: we have reached "peak beard". The theory on their falling stock was confirmed in a laboratory test by Australian boffins.
