PR and communications consultant
For people, organisations, consumer brands and charities looking to invest in meaningful communications that connect with their key audiences to energise, influence and empower
Clients who've invested in powerful PR for their business have been successfully featured in...
With ten years experience in communications, media relations, stakeholder engagement, partner campaigns and PR, I provide expert consultancy services from insight through to delivery to help clients build influence in an ever-changing media landscape.
Working with purpose-driven clients like the Living Wage Foundation and Citizens UK, my recent experience includes profiling Bectu union's 'Dignity at Work' campaign in the film, theatre, TV and entertainment sector alongside work as a PR Associate with 23red, a behaviour change advertising agency. Work here included launching the multi-award winning public awareness campaign 'Petfished' that encouraged pet lovers to always research the seller before buying a pet online.
I've also been lucky enough to profile inspiring founders like Becky Barrett, who showed true leadership during the pandemic to launch BBM Fitness, a women's health start-up dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing among women of all ages.
I forged my PR career in the charity sector at Macmillan Cancer Support before moving to renowned consumer PR and creative agencies, most notably Frank and 23red. All have proved to be formative experiences, inspired along the way by formidable colleagues and the power of great storytelling.
