Throughout her years as a financial journalist/editor Lucia has lived in various parts of the world. She lived in the UK for 18.5 years, where she was both employed full-time for several media outlets, as well as working on a freelance basis. After working in the UK, she lived and worked in the Middle East, first as a senior correspondent on a national newspaper based in Dubai and then as head of a newswire service for the Middle East and North Africa, also based in Dubai. She now has a media company called LCD Media, which aims to build up its subscriber base, and she has developed an information/media platform for which investment, or a partnership, is sought.

When Lucia came back to New Zealand, she made a documentary on refugees (before there was a problem) and it has been seen around the world. It is entitled; “Stepping up: NZ”s response to the refugee crisis”. Consequently, she judges films for the South Pacific Film Festival.

After teaching English in Vietnam, she also decided there was a need for an online Business English course. ( This is suitable for individuals, corporates and teachers.
