David Hancock is a communications professional based in Darwin. He is an experienced copywriter and publisher of books.
David Hancock is a skilful and knowledgeable writer who has been published nationally in The Australian, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Financial Review newspapers. He presently writes for Australian Geographic and Outback magazines, and the Anzenberger Agency, in Europe.
His experience spans 40 years of working for editorial, corporate and government clients. Where others work locally, David brings a national standard to the quality of his writing. He travels northern Australia regularly as a photographer and writer, has visited mine sites, offshore energy platforms, cattle stations, tourism destinations, Aboriginal communities and remote places. He knows Darwin and the region intimately.
David has written, and photographed, four books that have sold more than 30,000 copies – Top End, for Australian Geographic, A Vision Fulfilled, about construction of the railway line between Alice Springs and Darwin, Walkabout Chefs, an insight to Aboriginal culture through food and Life in Australia's Top End, about exceptional people and places of the region.
The last three books were self-published. David has written cabinet submissions for government, successful sponsorship pitches for large events like the Finke Desert Race and the V8 Supercars, as well as financial pieces on behalf of the private and public sector.
The broadness of David's writing, photographic and publishing skills are unmatched in Darwin. An added advantage is that he can draw on decades in the north to communicate the finer points of industry and commerce. David Hancock has lived in and written about the region for 25 years. He travels widely and understands the north better than most writers and is an all-round communications professional – a writer, photographer and publisher.
