Founder and Managing Director
Since founding Champion Communications in 2008, I have built and developed a team who demonstrate every day, the tangible connection between great PR strategies and outstanding B2B sales results. My biggest buzz comes from two things: 1) when a sale happens that has a tangible connection to the PR strategy we have developed, and 2) when a client tells me that a member of my team has exceeded expectations.
I love the opportunity of bringing creativity to client’s strategies and getting under the skin of each one to shape the most interesting stories. I am responsible for delivering real-world results by interacting with the media. I know how to look for, shape and sell in a story and also enjoy writing speeches and articles on big industry trends like women in tech.
Senior Account Executive
My daily media monitoring for client news opportunities gives me a great understanding of what drives a good story. I speak to journalists and clients on a daily basis and help to develop campaign ideas and build relationships. Another big part of my role is content creation.
Closely working with both the media and clients, I build relationships with journalists and develop campaign ideas and client content. I help clients achieve their goals by streamlining the communication process between them and their desired target audience. My favourite part of the role is the creative process of developing attractive story ideas for our clients.
Junior Account Executive
My work at champion entails speaking with the media and clients to build relationships with journalists and pitch ideas for engaging stories about our clients to the media. I help clients achieve their goals by positioning them as a thought-leader in relevant media outlets. Creating content and coming up with creative ideas to reach out to journalists with is the best part of my day.
External board adviser, Trainer, Coach, Mentor
I provide strategic advice at a senior level along with development and training to help make Champion’s great people even greater. I also deliver media training and messaging to Champion’s clients. I have over 30 years’ experience in journalism and PR, and 10 years in training and people development.
My mission is to find new efficiencies and eliminate unnecessary costs so we can focus our resources on finding and developing the best people – the ones who’ll help our clients deliver great sales results. I’m dedicated to making working with us (and working for us) as hassle-free as possible.
My job is to find the very best candidates in the industry, bring them into Champion and to ensure that they thrive - I am the people’s Champion. I’m a former PR consultant and my experience of the PR industry and working in agencies means that I don’t provide generic HR advice and systems. Everything is tailored to the realities of the agency world.
