Description: I am just finishing work for a PR agency specialising in travel and lifestyle clients.
I have led teams to implement several successful PR campaigns for a wide range of leading travel brands including Saga Holidays, Jordan Tourism Board and The Associate of Corporate Travel Executives. Hotels have also predominated and in the past five years, I have helped reposition, launch and increase both business and leisure travellers to a number of hotels and resorts including Rezidor Hotel Group, Gleneagles Hotel, Turnberry Resort, Elegant Hotels, Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort, Apex Hotels, Amazing Retreats and Z Hotels.
Within every campaign I will undertake all manner of PR activity from running an efficient and proactive press office by securing positive articles in print and broadcast both nationally and regionally and in both consumer and trade publications; offering crisis management when needed; running social media campaigns; looking after corporate PR; maintaining hype and ‘talkabilty’ through creative articles and photo stunts; securing high profile personalities and dignitaries represent brands or become spokespeople at specific events; arranging events from ‘celebrity’ attended launches to intimate media lunches; organising press trips for target media.
I started my career in 2000 as a journalist firstly completing an internship with Harper’s Bazaar before becoming features assistant at Hello! Magazine. I therefore consider myself to be a strong writer and since joining the world of PR, I regularly write press releases and even website and brochure copy on behalf of my clients.
