Julie Neason

Julie has worked in publishing for over 20 years and is one of the few consultants with extensive experience in both the not-for-profit and commercial sectors. Having managed a highly successful self-publishing society operation, Julie went on to work for one of the major commercial publishers where she had responsibility for account management and development of new society partnerships.

Consulting since 2012, Julie’s focus is on managing journal publishing tenders and renegotiating publishing contracts, and she has a successful track record of realising tangible benefits for societies through the creation of new agreements. With an astonishing eye for detail, Julie is able to bring an informed, balanced and realistic view, and can spot where the problems lie at a thousand paces. While her approach is a measured one, Julie is a tenacious negotiator and it is true to say that little slips past her. She is thorough and methodical and is the only person with whom people dare not argue when discussing the potential pitfalls of partnership arrangements.
