My Teacher Intro

Enthusiastic about Celebrity Public Relations, I have worked in the high-profile industry for almost 10 years, working on some of the most historic events in recent times such as the London Olympics to working with notable TV celebrities, as well as Carole Middleton, the press and prestigious business owners. I will give you insights to the world of high-profile PR, show you how I moved into this industry after shifting careers dramatically and how I have built a strong reputation in the media. More recently, I have moved into working for high profile charities, including Project Lighthouse as well as EdTech, FinTech and PropTech niches.

I bring fun, humour and story telling to my courses, giving each student engaging material and something memorable to take away with them which will boost their confidence in this field and give them the tools to build their own PR and Marketing consultancy. I will show you what it’s like to work in public relations helping you discover if it’s the right career move for you.

Qualifications & Experience

I have 20 years experience in working in high profile PR and Communications, often seeing me heading and presenting educational information to both private businesses, clients and the public. The two highlights of my career were planning and presenting the Surrey 2012 Team's public information evenings across the county ahead of the extensive road closures. I also devised the presentations for the Surrey's Got Talent courses and the Surrey School Games 2012.

More recently, I was approached by Carole and Mike Middleton to be their Head of PR and Communications, seeing me become the private publicist for Ms Middleton. During this time, I worked closely with senior individuals at Kensington Palace.

I have had to master clear and concise communication and presentation skills, even under pressure and in front of particularly important people from politicians to the media. It is a field I am passionate about and I believe I have a lot of unique knowledge to share with others so that they can aspire to work a field that very few people get the chance to work in.

I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
