COMPETITIONS

Please refer to the competition wording in each magazine for specific entry instructions, as they differ from title to title.

Competition prizes are supplied by third parties based in the UK. Due to customs regulations and the prohibitive cost of sending prizes elsewhere, Kennedy are unable to accept competition entries from outside the UK. Entrants must be aged 3+ to ensure that prizes meet the minimum age for product testing.

Winners should receive their prize within three months.

STEVE BROWN

Finance Director

He may be the new kid on the block after joining Kennedy in May 2021, but Steve’s career as a qualified accountant spans more than a quarter of a century and has seen him working in the retail and publishing sectors. Steve stays informed of the financial climate and market trends to help create strategic plans for Kennedy’s future.  

Steve loves nothing more than watching a cricket match and is currently planning ways to escape from the reptiles that are taking over his home, thanks to his children.  

Sophie Rowlands 

Licensing Director

Creative and commercially minded, Sophie has overseen the growth of the Kennedy portfolio from 10 licences to over 30. Since joining the company in 2015, she has acquired an in-depth knowledge of pre-school, primary and pre-teen brands, building strong and strategic relationships with key licensors across these sectors.  

Sophie’s expertise within the industry is exceptional and she is passionate about bringing children their favourite licensed brands and characters in a magazine format. Away from the office, Sophie loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa with her naughty sausage dog Wallace.  

Harry Ford 

Operations Director

Joining Kennedy in 2011 after leaving school, Harry’s drive and passion has seen him work his way up from Office Administrator to becoming Operations Director in 2019. Over the years Harry has helped to create a company strategy that is focused on growth, and he is very proud of the fun, educational magazines that the company continues to create. 

When he’s not achieving his goals at work, Harry is hoping to hit the back of the net on either the football or hockey pitch. A huge fan of Chelsea FC, he is still coming down from the excitement of them winning the 2021 UEFA Champions League Final. 

Daisy Li 

Purchasing Director

Move over Santa, because Daisy is an expert when it comes to finding the perfect gift for each title. Spending the last decade in the covermount team at Kennedy has given her the skills and contacts to ensure each publication stands out from the crowd.  

As a mother of two young boys, Daisy has the inside scoop on what children want from their favourite magazines. She loves seeing how little surprises can make a child’s day – it’s Daisy’s way of sprinkling a little bit of magic over the Kennedy publications.  

dean barber

Managing Director

With a career in publishing spanning more than 25 years, Dean has brought his passion for producing exciting, innovative, and customer-focused titles to Kennedy. He joined the company in April 2018 and his commitment, positivity, and occasionally humorous approach are infectious to those who work with him. 

Dean is a self-confessed sports fan, especially when it comes to his favourite team – Leicester City Football Club. He is, however, just as happy watching the thrills and spills of the F1 Grand Prix as he is playing a sedate game of golf.
