My approach

My background

I set up Acorn PR in 2007 when I saw the poor value that many charities were getting out of their PR agency. In 2009, I was shortlisted as a finalist in the Hertfordshire Business Awards for my role in setting up Acorn PR and providing affordable, ethical PR to charities.

Before setting up Acorn PR, I worked for over 10 years in a variety of marketing-related roles in the private and voluntary sector, including as as Communications Manager for international development charity Computer Aid and as a journalist and editor for leading technology news site CNET. A published author, I hold a 1st class MA in Biological Sciences from the University of Oxford.
