I’ve been working in the field of public relations and marketing for over 25 years. My experience comes from both in-house and agency environments and in October 2009 I became a freelance consultant, after 11 years as Director of Public Relations at an award winning Newcastle-based communications agency. I’ve worked with clients in the public and private sectors and on campaigns which include business to business, business to consumer, travel and tourism, retail and leisure, manufacturing and charities. My remit is to devise and implement marketing and public relations strategies and also provide social media, crisis management, event management, copywriting and project management services to my clients. The nature of my work takes me all over the UK and I operate out of offices based in the North East and South East of England. I’m also used to working with other marketing professionals including communications agencies and freelance consultants to deliver full service support to clients.
