We're a leading publisher and event organiser in natural and integrative health, sports & education. In 2020 we implemented a 4 day working week with full pay, to improve the well-being – and in-doing so the productivity – of our staff.
Who we are
Target Publishing’s story began in 2000 when experienced publisher David Cann and his wife, Suzanne Cann, bought an already well-established trade title, Health Food Business from Bestway Designs Ltd.
Celebrating 30 years in publishing in 2016, David began his career in publishing at the London Daily News/Mirror Group, moving to Market Link Publishing five years later where he was a Board Director and Shareholder and was instrumental in growing the business. Increasing staff from 12 to 120 and achieving £5 million turnover in five years, where the board of directors launched the business onto the UK AIM market, before selling the business to Archant Specialist, the UK’s largest regional publisher, using the investment to launch Target Publishing.
Today, Target Publishing continues to be one of the UK’s leading independent publishers with over 30 staff working across 20 titles which produce 100 issues a year and organising 30 events annually. The business continues to be family-owned and run, with David and Suzanne very much still part of Target Publishing’s vision and strategy for the future.
To produce high-quality, industry leading content for niche markets which educates, inspires and informs. in-person, in-print and online.
Our 4 day work week
In 2020, we implemented a four-day working week with full pay, to improve the well-being – and in-doing so the productivity – of our staff.
Our staff can enjoy a three-day weekend every week to spend more time with friends and family, while still benefiting from their full five-day week pay.
