Since establishing the business in 2012 I've worked with a wide range of education sector organisations, including professional associations, learning programme and curriculum providers, major national education charities, the Department for Education, education sector magazine publishers and educational services companies.
I have a deep knowledge of the UK education sector. I spent almost a decade in senior corporate communications and media relations roles at the National College for School Leadership, the government funded agency charged with developing leadership standards in England’s state schools.
Accolades for my work include the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) UK Excellence Award for the National College’s ldr magazine, which I edited for over five years, plus a cluster of other national and regional awards.
I have over 25 years’ experience in media relations, editorial management and journalism, including six years providing PR consultancy to UK and US businesses in the IT, manufacturing, logistics and food sectors.
I began my media career as a local newspaper reporter back in the late 1980s and have a National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) qualification in newspaper journalism.
